YEAH!

i made it to my third NICU saturday OFF!!

AM indulgence
despite the fact that it is only 8 am, i have already spent ~$100 on:

running shoes: my favorite brooks glycerin 5s are becoming quite scarce. i know i'll have to try the next edition at some point, but i happened upon some really cheap 5s available only in my size on geardirect. so of course i had to get them.

2 albums:
santogold's self-titled santogold. she sort of reminds me of m.i.a. and this album seems like it would be great for running. i will test that theory today!
bon iver's for emma, forever ago is pretty much the opposite of santogold, but it fits the melancholy fall weather perfectly.

i also bought the rihanna song "disturbia". don't tell anyone!

plans for today
☑ 11-mile run (not sure if this will be inside or outside)
☑ relaxing post-run yoga
☑ the usual prepping/shopping for next week's dinners
☑ laundry, stop @ dry cleaner
☑ book hotel for charlotte half marathon
☑ thank you notes & gifts
☑ finally make butternut squash lasanga . . .

at least i got an earlier start this time!

I like your taste in music. Maybe you could post a workout mix if you have one so I could get some new ideas. I'm so sick of what's on my Ipod.

erin: ME TOO! so dangerous, though.

inmytummy: i'm so flattered :) i don't usually use mixes unless it's a race or a car trip -- i tend to just stick a bunch of albums on my nano every month or so and just listen to them all the way through while running. however, i will try to put together a fun list in a post soon. thanks for the idea!

allison: i learned about them from paste magazine, and my dad actually reminded me of them (he had heard them on philadelphia's awesome wxpn i think). yes, i get hip music tips from my 59 year old father.

hangrypants: i just love that song for some unknown reason. it is sort of demented and annoying and yet SO addictive.

claire: ahhhhgh i didn't get mine done! but i will on monday.
