I realized this week that I hadn’t blogged in a few weeks. Like always, life has been ‘excitingly busy’ and I’m glad to share some of these things with you!
We got a kitten! Welcome Emma “Cake Donettes” to the family! She’s a cute kitten that we fostered in November, and we didn’t want to give her up! She’s cuddly & likes to follow us around, and I have recently learned that she loves to fetch! We adopted her from PAWS, the largest no-kill shelter in Chicago.
I was also sick (not so fun as a new cat) for about two weeks as well. Unfortunately it coincided with our two trips for November/December, so I was sniffling my way through San Francisco on Thanksgiving, and also Orlando for a wedding. Running felt crappy for a few weeks while I worked all that junk & germs out of my system.
I’m also volunteering with the Chicago Triathlon Club this winter, helping out with a winter Swim-Run brick workout that is being held at a local gym. I’ve done this two weeks now, and it’s been a lot of fun to get to know other triathlete club members, and I’m also working on my own swimming too!
Speaking of working on swimming, I got a new swimsuit — my first in 10 years! Well, my first athletic swimsuit (I’ve gotten a few bikini/tankini’s for vacations). This summer when I was swimming at the pool, I was definitely wearing my old team suit from senior year of high school when I was on the local swim team, the Franklin Knolls Gators. I was amazed it still fit, wasn’t see through, but I was worried that who knows when it might go to shreds.
Do you consider certain clothes to have an expiration date — you shouldn’t wear it after a certain life span? I hear about that for sports bras, but rotate them through running, then cycling & lower impact activity. What about regular bras, or other workout clothes?
