Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons
#1 Hey There 33!
It’s my birthday day. 33 years old and still getting ID’d at the Beer Store (seriously….and sometimes being laughed at while being ID’d).
I have track practice tonight, so nothing big happening tonight other than maybe making a few track kids wear party hats. We went out to the new Mandarin yesterday for my “birthday dinner”. Other than that, nothing going on for my birthday. Actually I might stop at Orleans Bakery after class today and buy a super duper cupcake.
#2 Hey There New Garmin!
I picked up my new Garmin yesterday. I went with the Garmin Forerunner 15 as I really only need pace, distance and time. I picked it up at the Running Room yesterday. I really like the colour of it and the watch is significantly lighter than my 405. I haven’t taken it out for a run yet, but will later this afternoon.
#3 Who is Joining me for RunOttawa 2016?
Have you registered for Ottawa Race Weekend yet? What are you waiting for? 🙂
It is not to let to register. Lots to choose from and you will have a great race no matter what distance you cover. I’ve run the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon and each either I feel like I have to toss a coin to figure out what race I’m going to register for. I’m running the half marathon this year and would love it if you joined me. The half is usually the first race to sell out and will probably sell out shortly. So sign up!
#4 I lose things…..like my pants
The other day I was getting ready to head to GoodLife and I realized that I could not find my Nike tank that I purchased at the Nike 15K. I really love that tank as it fits perfectly. Luckily, I did find it – it was in a pile of workout clothes. However, I cannot find a pair of jeans and my purple sweater that I lost months ago. I’m pretty sure that my purple sweater is either at the track or at a school somewhere. I doubt I will ever get that back. But my jeans? I have no idea where those have ended up……
#6 BRIDGEHEADS IS COMING TO ORLEANS
If you are from Ottawa, you might know of a coffee place called Bridgeheads. They are starting to expand to the suburbs and apparently an Orleans location will be opening soon. How soon, I have no idea. But still – Bridgeheads!! In Orleans! YAY! Anytime I go to MEC or downtown, a stop to Bridgeheads is a must. I’m a tad bit excited 🙂
Alrighty – time to get to work. Have a great Thursday!
