New Helmet - So here's the story. I have a older helmet that was a grey-green color. I decided at some point last year that I wanted a pearl white helmet. I don't even remember exactly why. Husband decided to help me out by spray painting my helmet with a pearl white paint. Nice thought, but it turned out sort of a mint green. It probably needs multiple coats of paint. Fast forward to this weekend, and somehow he suggested that I look at helmets at REI. Lo and behold, I found one that is pearl white with some greenish flowers. It's girly, but not too girly, and will look good with my bike. Score!
Double Weekend? - Tour de Cure is in 16 days; we are doing the quarter century. The day after Tour de Cure there are two running events that I've been looking at and are seriously contemplating: a flat 8K and a hilly 10K. At this point, I'm leaning toward the flat 8K. If I sign up for one of those running events, it will be only the second time that I've done a double-event weekend. Stay tuned!
New Shoes - My friend (and former running coach) opened a new running store on this side of town. Stopped by on Monday to pick up a pair of the new Kinvara 4. Haven't tried them out yet other than in the store, but I'm excited to have them. For what it's worth, this black-pink color combo isn't one that I would normally choose, but it's what he had and I like it better than I expected. However, If it turns out that I *love* them, I will buy a second pair in another color online.
