new obnoxious kicks.

Interwebs I snagged myself a brand spankin' new pair of obnoxious kicks, to go along with THESE. This time I went with bright green and what I can only describe as hyperspace hot pink. Because in real life the pink on these shoes is brighter than neon. And I couldn't think of a better term than 'hyperspace'. And it. Is. Awesome. (although the laces kinda look orange in the picture, they aren't).



Drum roll please.

No really. Did you do a drum roll?  For reals. Do one. Right now.

Thanks.

I will be wearing said obnoxious kicks in the Prairie Fire Half Marathon in about a week. My hip is doing significantly better. I've been walking, swimming and biking (more on that later) since taking a full week off after peaking at a long run of 19 miles and then dealing with my crapped out hipster. And doing all of the prior pain free. It doesn't even hurt to stand on my left leg anymore, this is a definite improvement. Because, people.

I can put pants on. By myself. Without holding onto my bed. SUCCESS! And yes, I raise my arms in the air every morning now and scream 'success!!!!!!!!' after putting on my pants.

While I'm a bit concerned that my running ability has been diminished by a lack of running the past few weeks, I'm hoping my cross training and those long runs will carry me through comfortably in the half mari. I have no intentions of getting a PR. But I do hope to maintain a fairly decent pace and come in under two hours. I'll be doing a lil' bit o' race tune-up Saturday morning at the annual Rosstoberfest 5k, yet another race that runs down my street and past my house.


So that's that. I have obnoxious new shoes. And I will run a half marathon in them.  Does life get much more exciting than that? I thought not.

Glad the hip is a lot better, and that you're feeling the 1/2 marathon.

I've been thinking about your hip occasionally since I've been curious as to why it was treating you so bad. (I've got several thoughts on the matter if you're ever bored enough to hear them)

Hope to see you and your shoes on the 9th.

I still get comments almost every time I wear my flshy neon yellow Kinvaras. Nothing wrong with a little foot bling, right? Especially if that's all you can get in your size or they're on sale...
