First things first. As it always should be and why do we even say that anyway? If we did last things first then they really wouldn’t be last. They’d be the first things.
How bout, “chronologically speaking” or “of most importance in the forefront” or “this is the order the pics are in the photo album”?
Off track. Re-routing.
In re: to this post and your comments – OUaL will still MOS DEF be a running blog. My life is not exciting enough to fill the internet with non-compression/hydration/sweaty things worth reading about, trust me. BUT, I will make an effort to include those things when they do happen.
But not today. Well not really. This is like half real-life and half run-life.
So last week I was supposed to go to the Girls Night Out event at my Roadrunner Sports store. Margot and Kristina went (recap) but I was stuck at a last-minute work event thing and all kinds of sad about it.
LUCKILY the Laguna Hills store had one this week and I was in a stable enough frame of mind to battle rush hour traffic on the 5 to hit up the cupcake/champagne/runner heaven party.
runners! triathletes! some sweaty, some not! free stuff!
The premise of GNO is similar to the Adventure Run I did with Sheila before, but without the actual running part. Which means, bonus – seeing what people look like in “real” clothes! Un-sweaty! Like running into your teacher outside of school! Kinda weird.
Vendors gave demos and showcased product (New Balance, Adidas, massage/therapy/treatment companies, etc), lots of raffles, bra fittings, and of course the real draw – cupcakes and champagne.
[excuse me while the Jr High'er in me rolls the Southpark "punch and pie!" clip a few times]
So it was fun. I’m glad I got to go, even if I didn’t win anything and Tiffany hogged all the prizes. Seriously, a free deep tissue sports massage AND a full RRS outfit of her choice?? Lucky duck.
But for reals I love Roadrunner, and the Laguna store has a super neighborhood’y (?) feel to it. Everyone’s so friendly, the shoe experts listened to me whine about my relentless search for a Launch replacement, and yes I ended up dropping almost $50 on that Moving Comfort bra.
(it came with its own “delicate” bag for the washing machine? am I supposed to sweat in it or wear pearls and eat caviar in it?)
For that kind of cash and pompousness I think I’ll continue wearing it on the outside of my clothes.
* Have you been to a Roadrunner event? Will somebody explain to Brian why I HAD to spend our grocery budget on something that just keeps my boobs from smacking me in the face while I run?
