It's time to get a new pair of shoes. I run in Asics Gel Nimbus and since they are pricey, I like to buy the previous years' model on sale. Normally, I couldn't care less about the colors. But I runfess that I haven't been able to bring myself to buy any of the available 17s in my size because the remaining colors are so ugly. Seriously butt ugly. Which is why they are probably available. What were the shoe designers thinking this year? How long will it be until the 18s go on sale?
With both my boys learning to drive over the past couple of years, the bumpers on my Jeep were cracked. Now that they have their own cars, it was time to fix mine. Gone with the old rear bumper was my 26.2 Chicago sticker. I runfess that I have not replaced my 26.2 sticker. Don't get me wrong, I've thought about it. I've even browsed online for a replacement. For some reason that I can't identify, I just haven't been able to bring myself to buy one. But maybe it's this: I recently saw a car with a 26.2 x3 sticker on it. Dude. Just slap a 26.2 on your car and be done with it.
Last Sunday, I went on a really nice bike ride and was able to enjoy some cooler temperatures. Even though the bike path at the forest preserve was a little crowded with runners, walkers, and little kids on bikes, I didn't let them get under my skin. What did get under my skin was a jerk in his SUV who, on my way home, turned in front of me without using his turn signal. I asked him where his turn signal was. Yes, he was THAT CLOSE to me. He replied by asking me where mine was. I was so stunned that I didn't reply. As I rode away, I runfess--or should I say I bikefess-- is that what I wanted to say is "You want a turn signal? Here's your turn signal!" and then given him the business finger. I always think of the good responses after it's too late...
Do you have anything to runfess? Have you ever misheard lyrics to a song? How many running bumper stickers do you have on your car? Any run-ins with bad drivers while you've been biking?
I'm linking up with Marcia! And with the DC Trifecta--Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia--for the Friday Five!
