Reward Yourself

So I decided I deserved a little treat for my PR performance on Saturday. And no, the Chipotle burrito after the race did not count as a treat. That was just refueling and good common sense.

I've been wanting a new running skirt for a while. I've been running in skirts since before they started making running skirts. One of my favorite skirts to run in is one I wore for tennis at least 10 years ago. I've been drooling over this skirt for a while (I'd post a picture, but I am just not good with the whole computer thing). Yes, it's another tennis skirt. Yes, it has pleats. Yes, it will probably make my ass and thighs scream "I am Heather, watch out or my wide ass might know you right on down." But the heart wants what it wants.

Because I was just so proud of myself for my PR, I also ordered a matching tank top. I have visions of myself looking smoking fast (not to mention smoking hot) in my new running uniform. And if you can't be fast, you might as well look fast.

In other news, I've got an 8 mile marathon pace run on the schedule for tonight. Hills tomorrow, easy run Friday, and the last 20 miler on Saturday (still looking for a babysitter, by the way . . . any volunteers?). Happy Wednesday!

Cute skirt! I've actually been looking at the tennis skirts lately too.

I'd love to babysit, but I'm thinking I live a little too far away. ;o)

You do have to reward yourself. Plus, looking hot while you are working out is never a bad thing!!
