So I didn't run since last week. I was waiting for Anthony to sign up for the December half marathon before I did because it was his idea and I didn't want to end up doing it alone. But then last week we discovered it was full. There went that idea and my first thought was yay I don't need to run anymore. My second thought was maybe I should find a different race so I could keep running. Regardless, I took a couple days off. Today is Nike run club day though and I wanted to run with them. At some point during the day I decided I didn't want to go all the way uptown after work and then have a really long ride home so changed my plan to try the runs at the Flatiron store. I get there at about 6:15 to sign in. They asked if I was there for the photoshoot. Photoshoot? That's when I was informed today is not their typical run. They will still be running but it will be photographed and we will be stopping at different street for sprints for the camera. I was already there and it sounded cool so I thought why not. But the only Nike gear I was wearing were my socks. So they outfitted me in a base layer tee, wool top, leggings, and shoes. And then we were off. The first thing I noticed was how I can't run in cushiony shoes. There was so much bounce and I was definitely striking a lot more with my heel in these shoes. Didn't like that but I couldn't do anything about that. It was fun but it was freezing. My body felt fine but I wasn't wearing gloves and couldn't feel my fingers. We ended up at a studio where they had dinner and drinks and they said the shoes need to go back but any gear we got is ours to keep. Score! I picked a good night to try out the Flatiron store.
