Three Things Thursday

Yes, it's time for another Three Things Thursday à la Morgan!

1. After a two week search, I finally found a new pair of my trusty Saucony ProGrid™ Stabil CS. I was sure that the new pair I bought in July would carry me through the marathon, but recently discovered that they're a little too worn out already.

2. Hubby is sick and I am trying my hardest not to catch it. I can't afford to get sick 10 days before my marathon. PLEASE send healthy vibes our way!


3. Chic Runner is hosting a Zensah giveaway. Check it out here! And you still have some time to enter Tall Mom on the Run's Lift Your Sole Giveaway!


Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

Healthy vibes to you from Ottawa,

I "lurv" my saucony's and usually have to retire them between 300 - 500K....you've been running that in, what? One week? LOL...

You have tortured those shoes, LOVE IT!! New pair well earned.. I am awaiting a new pair of kicks, I CAN"T wait!!

I have a pair of saucony progrid too and love them.

You found your shoes right on time for the marathon -it's a sign!!

Sending healthy vibes your way..

Cindy said...

i hope those germs stay away! think of it this way, you probably have super immunity from being so fit--it can't get you!

X-Country2 said...

Just walk around spraying Lysol all over everything. I'd even spray it on him in his sleep.

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

It RAINED yesterday.. I am not a fan of wet legs or arms, so I wore tights...and long sleeves...LOL.. Hubby wore shorts and a t-shirt.

I will be reviewing the tights soon, but I want to test them on a cold weather day..

Thanks for commenting...I guess people don't like reviews... hehehehe

Gotta Run..Gotta Ride said...

better to be safe with some new shoes than take a risk with the old ones. you are a smart chic!

sending good healthy vibes your way.

Jess said...

Put the hubby in a plastic containment unit and refuse to share air with him :)

unathleticrunner said...

Sending you healthy thoughts! Got my nails done at my usual place. They were all sick--so, I of course took Ultimate Defense right after I left--just to make sure! I also was informed I have to get the flu shot (from my dr) since I work at a college and go into high schools---great--I am sure it will give me the flu! :)

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Apparently the trick is to write about something that people are interested in... HEHEHEHEH

Thanks for ALWAYS checking in :) I can count on my Marlene...

Mark said...

Jamie said...

yay for new shoes! glad you tracked down a pair.

trialsoftraining said...

Agh! STAY HEALTHY! I always take a Multivitamin (for a few days) when I feel like I am getting sick (or even Might get sick). Usually does the trick :) plus extra sleep and fluids!!

Nice work on finding those shoes - as we all know, that can be quite a freakin' challenge. gah!

Laurel said...

Happy Thursday!!!

Ooohh...tell hubby to stay away from you and stock up on the Airborne! My hubby was fighting off a cold last year during the Philly Marathon and it was not pretty.

Be careful and good luck!!

I Run for Fun said...

New running shoes always make me happy...even if they are not mine!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you...stay healthy!

Quarantine Hubs!!! Get lots of rest, eat your fruite and veggies and don't touch your face. Eeeek.

NO getting SICK!! That is what happened to me pre-Shamrock, hope your Hubby feels better soon. Take some Echinachea (sp?) and get lots of sleep. Nice kicks BTW.
