Day one...I am going to get this blog up and running today! It is definitely a work a progress so keep checking back as it will be changing and hopefully gradually getting better.
Today is Easter and I was up before my family in order to be at church by 9 to play my flute in 2 services. I was exhausted as we were up late last night at a Caps game which went into double over-time. I was OVER it. We didn't get to bed til about 1am. After church my husband and his dad headed to a Nats game and the boys and my mother-in-law and I went to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse for brunch. Lots of delicious food!
I decided a short run was in order...I have some new items I had been wanting to try out.
Procompression Socks and a FlipBelt! It was hot and I don't do well in the heat paired with running later in the day (I prefer morning). I wanted to try the compression socks because I have been having problems with my right calf being really tight. I found these to be comfortable. But it was warm and not sure if this is my look. I usually wear capris and only resort to shorts when it is really hot (like today). I just don't feel comfortable with the legs out! I do really like these shorts though. They are by BROOKS and I love the vented sides to make room for my muscular quads so they don't ride up. I purchased the FlipBelt the other day at Pacers when we picked up our packet for the GWParkway10 Miler that I am running next weekend. I want something to hold my phone (which is big) and dislike an armband. This worked really well and also held my ipod shuffle that I run with. It didn't jostle around and I wore it right over the waistband of my shorts. After awhile I didn't really realize it was there!
So basically 👍 to both new items!
So there you have it - my first blog post! This will be so much fun!
