Okay not really. I was just channeling my inner Forest. "Life is like a box of chocolates..." okay, okay, I'll stop now.
I got new running shoes yesterday in preparation for starting the Couch to 5k running program today. I'm super excited. However, in my fabulous new shoes euphoria I totally forgot to get a stopwatch but my cell phone has a stopwatch feature so I'll see how that goes. Maybe I'll save myself some money -- I already pay for the cell phone after all.
The shoes are new shiny white and in my twisted fashion I can't wait to make them filthy! I can't wait until they're tattered and worn like my old dingy gray workout shoes (they were once shiny white too). I could buy black so they wouldn't look so gross but where's the fun in that? It's like watching the pounds melt away -- you know what you're doing is working. Same concept with the shoes. The dirtier and beat up they look the more you know you're USING them!!!
So I say "bring it" running program. Me and my shiny new magic shoes are going to own you!
