3 Things Thursday

This is my very first Three Things Thursday post. Yey!  Keeping this short and sweet.  So, here goes...

1.  Weather -  It has been really warm hot here in SoCal since Monday.  In case you didn't know, there was a heat wave last Monday during my long run (record-breaking 113 degrees).  I wanted to swim today to take advantage of this heat but when I got to the pool, there was no sun!  And it was 12 noon!  The water was cooooold. Brrr!  So, here I am, back at home, still in my swimsuit and rash guard, blogging instead.  Waddup, Mother Nature?

2.  New Shoes - It's time for my Mizunos to retire.  She's now more than 500 miles old and has been showing some wear and tear.  I feel it too.  She has served me well.  Thank you, Mizzy!  It's now time to move on to my next running shoes, the Asics GT2150.  Unfortunately, Finish Line didn't have my size so they had to order it for me.  They promised to deliver it by next week.  The best thing about it --- it was on SALE!!! Woot! Woot!

3.  Dream Bike - I would really love to own a Cervelo but it is just waaaaay too expensive for me.  So, instead, I found her....

Isn't she preeeeeeeetty?  I don't have her yet but she is the latest addition on my vision board.  I am claiming her already.  I WILL HAVE HER!  Save, save save!

Happy Thursday Everyone!!!

  1. I just got the pink ones too, they're so cute! I hope they work as great for you as they do me! :)

    Very jealous of your new set of wheels!

  2. OK-I love the kicks.

    and 113?! HOLY CRAP. That's AZ hot. You go girl. You will not find me out there sweating it out!

  3. Love the new bike, hope you get it soon!

  4. @Morgan: Oh I hope so too! The bike is not mine...yet. Bit it WILL be. Still saving up =)

    @Emz: I know right? Hellish hot!

    @Kovas: Yes pls! Thanks for the positive vibe =)

  5. I'm so happy that the weather here has cooled to more fall like temps. Sorry you're dealing with a heat wave. Ick!

  6. Good for you Tina! Can't wait for fall to really arrive. =(

  7. I'm thinking of getting a pair of 2150's. How do you like it so far? My Adizero Tempo has been taking a lot of punishment during my long runs.

  8. I was about to comment that, you dearly love pink :)

    It's raining here; hence, I cannot run, huhuhu...

    New gear? Haven't purchased, but I had it for free - my Sprint VFF.

    Latest addition to my vision board.. hmm.. is running a pikermi acceptable?

  9. yay for new shoes!!

    our weather has been nice. highs of about 85, lows around 57.

  10. Weather here has been ok. We have cool mornings and the rest of the day is pretty all right. :)
    I haven't bought any new gear in a while. The last I bought was a pair of Brooks Adrenaline.
    I love the pink you have going there!
    Have a great weekend!

  11. hi julie, i'm thinking of getting a pair of 2150's as well. how do you like it so far? i want to use it for my long runs. is the cushioning good enough?

  12. @runningconsiglieri : I'll be getting it next week since I don't have a size in the store. should be delivered here by wed or fri. =)

    @MinnieRunner: yes it is =)

    @Lisa and Christina; Lucky girls! Perfect running weather!

  13. Very cute shoes!

    I can't believe it's been so hot there! I'd be dying! Hopefully it cools down for you guys soon. :)

  14. LOVE the bike and the cute! Is it wrong that I find pretty, pink things so motivating? :)
