Saturday morning I felt rather like a duck. There I was, waddling along out in the rain with wet, yellow feet, etc, etc.
Let me explain.
The shoes are new. 🙂 My current pair was finally starting to feel its age, and I knew my body would start feeling it too if I didn’t get new shoes soon.
The nice thing about these Wave Rider 15’s is they’re an old model, which means they are usually on “liquidation” or “special clearance.” It also means the selection is more limited. My size was available in yellow, and I like it more than I thought. Yellow is one of my favorite colors; I’d just never seen it featured so prominently on running shoes!
The second exhibit is just a view of the wet road in a tiny town near our house. I elected to turn left instead of running up that giant hill in the background.
Saturday morning I let Boo the bulldog out first thing, and I was greeted by wind and rain as I peered into the darkness.
It seemed miserable out, so I pulled on my new yellow shoes and started my run on the treadmill. After an hour the monotony was wearing on me. It had gotten light enough for me to see the rain was only a mere drizzle.
Once I hit 60 minutes I stopped the whirring machine, quickly put on some weatherproof layers, took a gel, and took my run outside.
It was there on the roads, as I splashed through puddles when the rain got harder, that I felt like a duck in my yellow shoes.
Speaking of ducks…
Ours are busy growing and learning about the business of being birds.
We’ve got the ducks and geese in one tub and the chickens and turkeys in the other. Even though it’s only been 5 days, I can already visibly see them growing.
It was a little challenging to fit bird care in along with our normal work and routine, but now that we’re getting used to them it’s pretty smooth.
Don’t worry, we’re still taking good care of these girls!
Wishing you all a great start to your week.
