A while ago, Jeff won a free Road ID bracelet, which I promptly stole (side note: there seems to be a bit of a theft theme in our marriage). Anyway, I finally ordered it - that whole "not running" thing kinda put a damper on my enthusiasm over getting a new one for a while, but I managed to rally myself. They have a new Wrist ID Slim, which is really neat - it's a smaller stainless steel engraved plate on a rubber bracelet. The cool thing? It will also fit on most of the support bracelets out there (like the Livestrong one that Janell sent me a while ago). Road ID also sells additional colors for just a dollar each, so you can match every outfit, should you so desire...and you KNOW I am all over that!!! I'm thinking that when I finally get back to running, I will treat myself to some extra colors, just for fun.
I have a yellow and a maroon band, but I need - NEED - a purple and a lime green one!
A few people asked in the comments from Wednesday's post what I wore to my hot yoga classes. You would think the answer would be "as little as possible" but I found out that less is not necessarily better when it comes to hot yoga...on Monday, I wore my knee-length yoga pants and a sleeveless top, which worked fine when I did regular yoga classes. Well, having such bare legs made some poses more difficult - there are weird configurations where you're wrapping one leg around another (arms, too) and the sweat made everything slip and slide. So last night (do you like how I slipped that tidbit that in - I went to yoga AGAIN - twice in one week - go me!) I wore a pair of my Nike running capris and a Champion C9 (Target brand) top, and I was much more comfortable...while I could not imagine running in this heat in capris, they worked great for hot yoga. I took a quick picture on my way out the door - hair scraped back into a pony tail, no make up - hey, it's not very flattering, but it worked!
This is a racer-back top, which felt really good in the heat. Plus I liked the loose body. And of course the color was fun! :)
So swimming. There is not NEARLY the amount of fun things you can get for swimming as you can for running. Even the few swimming t-shirts I've seen just didn't feel right for me - I'm not a competitive swimmer, but I am proud of myself for taking the plunge (I know, that was bad). A few weeks ago I was messing around on the Running Chics website and found this:
It's me! Not sure what I love more, the swim cap, the goggles, or the fact that she's swimming with her head out of the water!
Here's a picture my friend Terry took of me when I wore the shirt to our weekly lunch on Wednesday:
I love this shirt - I'm a Swimming Chic!
During our lunch, Terry also got a picture of me and my "halo" - do you see it?
Hope you all have a great weekend, and come on in, Tropical Storm Don - Texas is waiting for you!!!
