1) As part of my sponsorship with Sony, they provided me with their new MP3 Walkman. It’s basically cordless, small, light & barely-there.
And, it’s allowing me to say “I’m listening to my Walkman" without pulling out a cassette tape. Win!
It behaved wonderfully during our photoshoot this morning; no complaints about the early hour or the cool temperatures on the deck. Passed the test!
It’s not quite as stable on the run as my trusty iPod earbuds, but I do love the simplicity of its features: drag & drop music from iTunes to load it up with songs, plug into the computer for charging, wrap it around your head & into the ears for listening, and a magnet allows it to stay together…in a heart-shape. That’s my favorite part.
Music-listeners: Do you run with anything besides an iPod?
Would you try this?
2) When we moved to Colorado, we chose a 3-month lease because there were too many unknowns. So, do the math, we’re on the apartment search yet again!
For those of you counting, this will be the FOURTH time I’ve moved this year. Let’s have this be the only time we mention that. Ugh.
This search is exciting, but challenging. We’re moving INTO Denver (finally!), and there are a few neighborhoods that are tough to choose from. And tough to snatch an apartment in. So, keep your fingers crossed, and don’t mention the fact that I’ve now done this “search” during both training cycles. Holy Stress, Friends.
3) To let some of that stress out with deep pranayama breathing. In other words, Yoga is on the agenda tonight! Excited would be an understatement; I’ve needed nothing more than to zone out, relax and Stretch this week. And my core could use some attention before I engage it for 4 hours on Sunday…
Countdown: 3 days!!!!
