I'm a bit swamped with some work, but I wanted to post. Below is my gear for early morning runs. With the jacket alone, I assume I look like one giant, bright orb to passing cars.
For a run earlier this year, I wore a cape because it had a superhero theme. Of course, I was the last runner all alone at the end, so I was by myself running along the frontage road in a cape. So I'm fine being a giant orb.
Below is a photo of my very expensive compression socks. They came with instructions. (And yet somehow, I still missed that they're labeled "left" and "right.") I joked about the socks since I bought them. Yesterday, I forgot to wear them for a run. My poor feet.... I will never joke about the socks again.
I'd like to state for the record a PA and a doctor said I could still run. On the left is a split I use while I sleep. The other two things are actually a weight and a toy that lights up. I roll my foot on them to stretch the muscle on the bottom of my foot.
Below is a photo of a dinosaur chasing me.
Here's a photo of a headband with a sign that I wore to work yesterday, because starting a conversation like a normal person just never feels right to me.
On a side note, I finally figured out how to set up my running app properly. I learned from a blogger who calls herself the Running Tortoise. She describes herself as someone who's come to terms that she's a slow runner.
Of course, she posted her runtime. I am still slower than her.
Second side note: Please donate. I'm very close to reaching my goal; $13.10 is a nice number since I'm running 13.1 miles. More would be awesome. If you can just give change or a dollar, that's fine.
I collected singles from people. Depositing a bunch of singles might look odd to the bank tellers. But that's just a plus.
