3 Things Thursday-In Pictures

  1. After several suggestions of fellow runners for my shin pains, I stopped by a running store last night and picked up some Zensah Compression Sleeves (headless man not included).  My goodness--I am not sure what took me so long to invest in there bad boys, but I <3 them.  As Sarah told me via email, they are like hugs for your legs all day long!
  2. I swear,  my legs are not really this ugly.  I think its just a weird angle!  I wore them under my dress pants today and I feel great!
  3. I have less than 48 hours until the Baltimore Half Marathon so I am trying to hydrate myself better than I have in previous races.  I have had three of these bad boys so far at work, and will probably get another 1 to 1.5 in before I leave.
  4. My desk is not normally this messy--its just a hectic day. 
  5. I was digging around in my purse this morning for my chapstick when I realized that my purse, aside from my wallet, a book, and my phone, is filled with running stuff.  Olga, some Blistex Chapstick, generic Aleeve (seriously, I am cheap), my nano (with an updated play list), a luna protein bar (totally delicious, btw), Clif Chocolate Shot (so goooooood) and Clif Bar (pre run fuel). 
 Thats all for today.  After work I am heading to the Expo to get my race packet.  I am bib number 41285.  I am trying to find something positive in the number, but can't quite come up with it.  For those of you who like numbers and can come up with something creative (and positive) regarding the sequence of my bib numbers, I am interested in hearing it!

Happy Running Everyone!

so, mr. dawn has taken to stealing my zensah compression sleeves! he plays soccer sometimes and has tired legs. i suggested that he try them out and if he likes them we'd get him some. so now...i go looking for them and find them: on. his. legs. its super funny cause he's so much taller and has super long legs...but he insists that he doesn't want his own. ridiculous.

good luck girl!

I love Cliff Bars! I need to try the Luna bars sometime. I got a pair of Zensah sleeves a few weeks ago, they are great. When I run I actually wear two of them on my right leg.

4, 12, and 8 are all multiples of 4 (1x, 3x, 2x) and there are 5 numbers in the bib. OR there are a total of 5 multiples of 4.

PS: Glad the compression sleeves were a success!

13 is my favorite number, so I always try to find some way for numbers to equal 13.Here goes:

[(4-1-2)(8)]-5=13
(1x8)+5=13
8+5=13
