Oh, Who the Hell Am I Kidding?!

Turns out all the cliches are absolutely true.

“You won’t miss it until it’s gone.”

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

Countless other cheesy quotes.

It’s only been like a week since I tried to quit the blog, and in that week I’ve had like four things I wanted to write about.  Then yesterday broke me.  I got in my most recent order from Road Runner Sports AND my St. Jude training shirt, and I was like, “WHO AM I SUPPOSED TO TELL ABOUT THIS?!”  And besides, I got to thinking about the friends I’ve made through this thing, and it made me sad to think that I wouldn’t make any more.

SO I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

Now!  About this Road Runner Sports stuff!  haha  Last weekend I got on their web site to order some new shoes and just happened to notice that they were having a sale on a lot of their RRS brand stuff, so I started poking around.  I always order my shoes through them, but I’ve never ordered clothes from them!  But I figured I didn’t have anything to lose since I pay for their VIP membership.  If I didn’t like ’em I could return ’em with no problems, so I bought a few things.

The pink one is this one (but the price has gone up a little bit!  It was only $19.99 when I got it.).  It’s so comfortable.  I can’t wait until it’s cool so I can wear it for a run.  My favorite part about it is the zippered pocket on the back of it.  My tights don’t have pockets and that pocket will let me leave my SPIbelt at home.

And the blue one is this one.  It’s out of stock now, but I grabbed it for only $15.  It’s got the same zippered pocket but this one even has a little hole in it.  I couldn’t figure out what the hole was for at first, but then I thought maybe it’s so you can put your phone in it and run your head phones through the hole?  Sounds legit to me!

I promise that’s just a weird lighting effect.  I have not turned Oompa Loompa orange.
But my most favorite is this jacket!  It’s every bit as soft and fluffy as my North Face plush fleece jacket, and I paid $19.99 for it.  Score!
God, I’m ready for fall.
And while I was shopping I came across these and ordered them too, just because it was pretty economical.  And you KNOW I’m all about the cheap.
$15.99 baby
Salted Watermelon?!?!  What?!?!   It’s awfully damn hard for me to resist the urge to tear into that for dessert.
And as if all that wasn’t enough excitement in one day’s mail, I also got my St. Jude Hero in Training t-shirt!

I didn’t even know I’d get one of these.  I knew I’d get a Hero singlet closer to race day, but this was a surprise.  I’m excited to wear it.  I NEED to wear it and start soliciting donations!  I’m still a long way off from my fundraising commitment!  Probably because I haven’t tried short of one Facebook post the day I signed up for the race.  haha  If any of you are so inclined, you can help me reach my goal here!

  1. Yay! Welcome back. I enjoy your weekly-ish dose of sarcasm, so no running away again! (Even though I can just go stalk you on facebook and keep sending you links for food lol)

    Also, going to go donate now. Go hero, go!

  4. Oh gosh, I really like the salted watermelon GU – I am curious to hear what you think. Have you heard of the root beer flavor? I just ordered that to try 🙂
