It’s that time of the month…
1. Over coffee…
I’d tell you that I have 22 goals for 2022 (and I’m not usually a Goals person.) Who am I?
(You can read about them on Tuesday Topics January 18 post)
I’d tell you that I accidentally ran 21 races in 2021. The race sign ups were not accidental but the number was. So of course, I plan to run at least 22 races in 2022.
I’d tell you that my feet are blister prone. I have tried all kinds of shoes, socks and even taped my feet.
Several years ago, I stumbled up Karrimor socks on sale in EMS. The were advertised to prevent blisters and they were very cheap (2 for $9).
I bought 3 pairs. And I always wear them for races.
I race a lot and so they are thread bare. I’ve searched and search for replacements.
I found them on Amazon for $35 (from China). And I love them so much that I was tempted to order them.
Recently I searched again and this time I found them on Ebay (and in the UK.)
I ordered 3 pairs!! Score! My feet are happy again!
I’d tell you that my high school reunion was cancelled last year. And it is re-scheduled for this year – June 5, 2022 at 1 pm. It’s biggie and I guess I should go. My class had 962 people of which I was friends with about 10. I still keep in touch through FB and occasional meet-ups.
So what’s the problem? MY FAVORITE RACE IS THE SAME DAY!! (the one that I have run every year!!!!)
I’d tell you that it’s only January but I have already registered for 13 races.
I’m cheap and I like to take advantage of the cheapest price. I am also choosing the no shirt option (if there is one) in all my races.
Signing up early keeps me on track as far as mileage. I rarely if at all have to DNS any races. Hopefully I will stay healthy next year as well.
