i don’t want to check a bag so i have to fit everything in a carry-on. but packing layers for cold/rainy running weather crowds out the space for street clothes. hi. ho. i have my priorities and am thankful that i work for a company where i can wear the same outfit for four days and nobody will think less of me
60°F temps on november 15th(?!) means i get one more run in wearing shorts!
( i can’t be the only one who gets the tom robbins reference in the title, right? )
“at least it’s not a nipple fissure!”
i was dragging it a bit on a 13 mile run and thought i could use some easy energy so i made a pitstop at the house and grabbed what i thought was a bottle of honey from the pantry. downed a tablespoon and thought, “oooooh what delicious artisan honey is this? and how did it get such strong vanilla notes?
i turned the bottle over. aaaahhhhh, not honey after all.
i’ve been testing our the new spotify running feature ( more here ) and i love it. the commissioned originals playlists didn’t really do much for me. i’m sure they’ll figure that out, but i can run to the “electronic moves” playlist at 170-180 beats per minute all day long. not too many repeat songs after several hours of running. i only wish they’d let me “thumbs up/down” and make it easy for me to add songs to my own playlists.
i was enjoying it so much on an 8 mile run today that i thought they surely left money on the table because i’d gladly pay for this feature. then it occurred to me that i’m probably more valuable to some companies that would really like to know not just that i’m a runner but when i’m running and how often i run. right on cue, i heard an ad for a protein recovery beverage.
and then, a little more slowly than it probably should have, a lightbulb went off.
