Running Shoes

Yesterday, I finally bought myself a pair of runnig shoes.  I'll be breaking them in this week and start running next week.


They are rather tight across the instep and will hopefully stretch out some (my mom said they will; her current pair of walking shoes are Nike and she said they felt the same way when she first got them). Nike tends to run small in their sizes as well; I also tried the 10 (I got the 9.5) but it was rather loose in the heel which would have gotten worse when they stretched out.


                                                                                         

Hope they'll last me til the end of the marathon. It would be rather annoying having to break in another pair of shoes right before the race. I'm also hoping to get together with my co-worker for either a walk or a run next week too, which I think will be a lot of fun.

#94: Move Out

I'm eternally grateful to my parents for letting me move back home after I graduated from Western to give me some time to find a job and save money.  The goal was always to move out by the time I was 25. But I'm surprised that I might actually move out sooner than I thought.

A friend of mine (who was a housemate during school) really wants to move up north and she said to let her know whenever I was ready to move out.  We've been talking about the possibility of mid-April being our move date but I don't know if that's going to work.  The big obstacle for me is having the finances to move out.  If I didn't have a car payment, this wouldn't be such an issue. I'm hoping that if I can't move out in April, mid-summer will hopefully be more doable. Now that I've been thinking about moving out, the more I want it to happen!

In Review: Febuary

Kind of odd to think that it's already March. Only 33 days before Sakura-Con! Last month was a little thin on posts but I'll make up for that this month.

#81: Picture a Month

I've always found the idea of taking a picture of yourself daily fun but I thought I would just take a picture at the beginning of each month (might try to do it daily on my next List). It's interesting too see how you change over time.  My digital camera is finally working probably without messing up the pictures when I try to import them onto my computer so I finally got to start this. Though I need to find a place where there's enough light so the flash doesn't go off.
