TOL: Random Running Thoughts

It’s Thursday – woo woo! What a week. My brain = mush. Which is why I’m grateful today for the Thinking Out Loud linkup, where I can just share a few semi-random thoughts with you today.

Today’s edition? RUNNING.

SHOES.

First, shoes. What kind of shoes do you wear? I tend to wear a neutral shoe with orthotics and I am LOVING my new Saucony’s. They are so cushiony! And I think they’re cute 🙂

SOCKS.

I have a new brightly colored running sock obsession. It just happened within the past month. I went from owning all white running socks to a bunch of fun colors. And I love it!

LEGGINGS.

I am so so so excited for my new running leggings!!! I ordered these Cleveland Marathon leggings before the holidays and they finally came.  I ordered the 3/4 length, because that’s what I typically wear, but now I’m wondering if I should’ve gotten the full.

RUNNING IN GROUPS.

I miss running with people. My two morning running buddies no longer live near me and with the bebe it’s been hard (aka I’m lazy) to schedule runs with them on weekends, etc. This past weekend, I participated in the Cleveland Marathon kickoff run and it was SO great to run with a group of people again! I forgot how much I love it. (and check out our leggings :))

SLEEP.

Ok this isn’t REALLY about running, but it’s related. I think I need more sleep. Scratch that. I know I do. This whole being a working mom thing with a 6-month-old baby plus trying to wake up at 5 a.m. to run thing is TIRING. I need some help in figuring out how to make it all work and how to get more sleep … or figure out how to run on significantly less than usual. Any tips? Hints?

  • Any tips for running on little sleep?
  • Are you a fan of colorful socks or white ones?

  1. Yes, shoes should always come first 😉 I also wear neutral, and prefer lightweight but cushion-y. My current rotation includes about 7 pairs (Brooks, NB, Nike, Newton…) Hmm. Maybe that’s what I’ll post about today! By the way, those leggings are awesome!

  2. I don’t have a baby, but I have trouble sleeping sometimes. Definitely this week. I’m sooooooo tired. It really effects me! I don’t know how you working mothers do it all.

    Bright socks all the way — white get too dirty. And those leggings are super cute!

  3. Are the leggings thick for winter (like fleece lined) or would they work in spring too? I’m wondering more about they fit. Like if they are for running outside in the cold or could be used for indoor yoga or something like that.
