Happy Tuesday and welcome to another installment of Tuesday Topics! Special thanks to Kim and Zenaida for keeping the Tuesday linkup alive in it’s new format! If you’d like to join along, just follow this link for the linkup rules and a list of upcoming topics. Today’s topic is What’s on Your Running Wish List? So let’s start, shall we?
First on my list would be a new treadmill (hey, go big or go home, right?) Winter in Chicago this year has made me appreciate mine more than ever, but it’s 19 years old and I know its days are numbered. And while I don’t need a lot of bells and whistles, technology sure has changed in the past two decades!
The second thing I would wish for would be a Peloton bike (still going big here!) I like to bike in the summer and we do have a trainer for home use (though I’ve never used it), but I just get so much FOMO when I see people post their activities using their Pelotons!
And while we’re on the subject of unrealistic wants, how about one paid entry to the race of my choice? Per month.
Okay, now for a few realistic wishes:
I would love a pair of the new Mizuno Wave Horizons. I’ve been running in Asics Gel Kayanos since I started running almost six years ago, and I think it would be nice to switch things up a little and see what other shoes have to offer.
I’d also like a pair of AfterShokz bone conduction head phones. I’ve read so much about them and with concerns for safety while running, I think they would be awesome. I love the headphones I have (Jaybirds), but I rarely run with them outdoors (they are, however, a lifesaver on long treadmill runs!)
A month’s worth of Balega socks! I have a few pairs, but it seems like I am always doing laundry to make sure I have a fresh pair on hand.
I will be running the London Marathon on April 28th, raising funds for Whizz-Kidz, an organization that provides wheelchairs and mobility devices for children and young adults.
