3. Our new sofa arrived yesterday. The whole reason for getting this - so dual naps could take place. Yes - forego the magazine perfect room and throw a huge sectional sofa in it so both my husband and I could take a nap at the same time. Do you know how bad it sucks when one person is napping away on Sunday afternoon and you are sitting in an uncomfortable chair? You can bet I'll be napping on this baby this weekend.

Three Things Thursday (including Mama Goes Masters report)
1. I have my first DNF to report! On Wednesday, I had every intention of running 8.25 miles for MCM Mama's 'Mama Goes Masters Virtual Race'. I even woke up a few minutes earlier to make sure I could squeeze it in. I'm usually rushing around Wednesdays trying to cram everything into the day. I started out, in the pitch black, and just was not into the run. I had some slight achilles pain and something weird going on with my ankle. I'm completely and totally paranoid I'll get injured before this marathon. I do not want to do something stupid and end up not being able to run it, so I ended up cutting the run super short. Today's run was completely pain free, even though my legs still felt like lead. Although I felt great after the 18, I think it's taking me awhile to spring back 100%! I already let her know I'm a big loser who didn't finish...haha.
2. I got new shoes! I currently rotate two pairs but only use the one pair for long runs. Although they still have some miles left to them, I know they won't last too much longer. Not wanting to experiment, I wanted to get the exact same model. I was hoping to find an excellent deal on them since they are an old model and while I found them at a discount, I couldn't get the deepest discount due to the size I needed. But, I ordered them Tuesday afternoon, elected free shipping and they arrived Wednesday. What? I was shocked. I'll start throwing them into the mix soon.
