I'm linking up with Clare today. Here are 5 things from my week...
1. I did something I've never done, I played tennis! I LOVED it. I had so much fun. Who knew?? I did record a little of it because I wanted to see what I looked like, and how I can improve. Main thing I learned, don't lift my leg every time I hit the ball! Here's a little video for your comic relief.

3. I had a little shoe drama this week. I've been needing new shoes for awhile, and with my half marathon coming up tomorrow, I wanted to go ahead and get some.
So, Jeremy got me some Adidas Energy Boost. I took them out for a 3 mile run, and I knew right away that they weren't comfortable. I didn't realize how bad it was until I got back to my car and saw this. (FYI, my socks were taller, I pulled them down for the pic)
I used to run in Brooks Pure Flo's, so I should've just stuck with what I know. The grass isn't always greener.
Back to the store I went, and headed straight for the Brook's. They don't have Pure Flo, but they do have Pure Connect, and after reading some reviews, I see that they are similar to the Pure Flo's, so I came home with them.
4. Yesterday's run was wonderful!! That blister had healed up enough after a couple days, and I put a bandaid over it. My Brooks didn't bother it at all, and they felt sooo good.
5. This afternoon I'm headed to Lexington for the night for the Horse Capital Half Marathon tomorrow! I usually have goals for my races, but after seeing this elevation chart, I've decided to just have fun and enjoy the scenery, because it won't be a PR! It's in the rolling hills of Lexington, so I know it'll be beautiful.
Do you like tennis?
What shoes do you run in?
