My Christmas Brooks

Santa was going to deliver new running shoes to Rachael and Mommy this Christmas, but apparently the workshop was working overtime and that didn't happen.  He left a note in our stockings that when they got done with them, he'd deliver them.  Well, the FedEx man delivered today!

While I love a new pair of shoes, it does take a few runs to break them in right.  These are weird shoes. It's the same shoe I wore for my first marathon so I am quite partial to them.  This specific pair is just not the same.  The tongue has a weird fold in them that bunches up when the laces are tied.  It puts pressure on the top of my foot on the toe bones.  It hurts to run.  I think I need to get a chiropractor appointment before I can accurately blame the shoes.

The quote today is quite fitting.  In the past couple months I have gained nearly 10 pounds and can't seem to shake them.  I've had a few too many pity parties for myself and stress at work continues to pile.  I know I can cut the 10 pounds easily, but for some reason they just aren't melting away.  I have finished the chocolate covered peanuts in my drawer at school so I am ready to cut back now.  Yeah, I'll blame the chocolates.  :)
