If someone had told me on my birthday last year that this year half my little bits and bobs presents would be running related I'd have laughed in their face! Now not only are they the most exciting presents but people who never believed I was running are actually buying me running related things! Never thought I'd be this person and it's amazing how much can change in a year. Got my first few buffs, recommended by Oldfloss and Ullyrunner which should help with the rest of the winter runs. All looking a bit black which I noticed when I took the photo so perhaps I should have a goal to branch out colour wise this year!
Due to a busy schedule, unfortunately no birthday run today. Took myself out for my last run of being 28 yesterday - a tough 5k in appalling seafront wind and rain (possibly the worst conditions I've run in so far) but still somehow enjoyable and a nice way to end, remembering how different my mind and body is from this time last year. My goal is to keep with the My Asics Plan and make that 10k by 30.
