Three Things Thursday

1.  I'm taking the plunge.  I signed up for Tall Mom's 1000+++ Mile Club.  (If you want to join, you can signup HERE.)  Technically the challenge is to walk, run, or swim 1000 miles in 2011.  Technically cycling doesn't count.  But because much of my training involves cycling, I'm making it my personal goal to move 1000 miles in 2010.  I'm not sure I could get there with running and walking alone.  Maybe that will be my goal for next year!

2.  I took another plunge and bought a running skirt!  Running Skirts is having a sale on their items already on sale.  So it was only $20.11!  I've been wanting on for awhile, but felt that the $58 price tag is a bit steep.  The best part is that it shipped yesterday and should be waiting for me in Maine when I return.  Unfortunately it's a little cold in Maine to be running in a skirt.  I'm thinking I'll just have to debut it at the gym and suffer the funny looks I'm going to get.
3.  I have a 3 mile run scheduled for today because I missed out yesterday.  I thought I was coming down with a cold and wasn't feeling well, so I thought it best to rest.  I also had some sore of irritation on my face that was making me really itchy (I think it's my new face wash).  So I took the day off.  But I'm feeling much better today and I need to get in my fourth workout for the week.  I'm going to do the same loop that I did last Friday to see if I can do the loop faster.  And tomorrow I weigh in, so I'm hoping it pays off!

Happy Thursday!


  1. I love running skirts! If I could afford to buy enough to wear one every time I work out, I totally would! (Although for me, the length of the "shorts" underneath can totally make or break the skirt.)

  2. you are going to love your skirt, I have a camo print one, it feels like you're wearing nothing.

  3. Oo definitely going to check out that skirt sale if it's still going on. I think a 1000 mile goal is a great one no matter how you get there :)
