Brooks Ghost 9 GTX® and was pleasantly surprised by these neutral waterproof, breathable shoes. I only thought it was appropriate to take a spooky photo of them being they're called the Ghost and it is Halloween week. More about these shoes in a minute - first let's talk about owning the run.
So How do I own the run.....Aside from be being a FL runner and the obvious answer is owning the rain, I have many other obstacles aka excuses to get over while running. I will not lie, this year has been very tough for me when it comes to training. I had good intentions throughout the year, but came up with so many excuses why I couldn't lace up. Here are a few (and I am rolling my eyes at myself while typing this). Buying a house. Moving. Packing / Unpacking. DIY house remodel. Traveling for work. Traveling for pleasure. Late night conference calls and meetings. Early morning conference calls and meetings. Heat. Humidity. Rain. Cramps.
I've got a pretty busy running schedule over the next few months. Next weekend is runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon, followed by a racecation to California with runDisney Super Heroes Half Marathon. In December, my office put together a team to run OUC Half in Orlando. Then in January, I have runDisney Half Marathon. After my breakdown at runDisney Paris Half Marathon (review still to come on that one), I learned the hard way that I can no longer improperly train if I am going to get out there and run 13.1 miles. Enough's enough. I am going to own the run by owning my schedule. No more excuses.
