Today at lunch I went to a local sporting goods store for some new running socks. You see, most of my running socks are white, but I don’t have much else that is white and I end up running out of socks too frequently while waiting for a big enough load of whites to put in the wash. #runnerproblems #livingsingleproblems

So I made sure to buy some darker colored socks. GENIUS!

A few stragglers of white, but mostly blue, gray and black. I love ASICS socks, I’ve worn the Intensity before but this will be my first try with the Quick Lyte’s. After I grabbed a few packages of socks, I walked around a bit and spotted a nice little iPhone holder that straps to the handle bars of a bike and a water bottle holder for the bike too. And then I remembered I used my last 2 pieces of KT tape this past Saturday so I got another roll. That ish is expensive! But it does help! As the cashier rang me up she said if I spent $6 more I’d earn a $20 gift card so I grabbed another package of socks! And now I need to decide what to use the gift card for.

Great news! I got my referral for physical therapy….my first appointment is Thursday! YAY!

Duncan has some great news too! He just won the latest game of tug…

Also, I just added these two inspirational pics/words onto my Dig Deep page.

Go the distance. Take it slow. Enjoy the journey.

Walk through the fog to find your light

I’m going to try and be more dilligent about creating them more frequently. I don’t have a Pinterest board yet but eventually I’ll set them up there.

So I have a few questions:

1. What are your favorite running socks and why? Are they white?

2. What sporting good item should I get with my $20 gift card? Should I buy a $20 item like a hat or something more expensive and pay the difference.

3. Do you take a lunch break at work? Do you eat at your desk? Run errands?


  1. Well, lol, being a PC brand ambassador, I’m all about Pro Compression. I have 16 pairs now… surprisingly none are completely white. If I had $20 on a gc, I’d definitely buy some Body Glide, and also a pair of headphones. I do take a lunch break. I usually make eat at my desk. Truth be told, my lunch is when I catch up on all the social media reaches.

    • I have 3 pairs of Pro Compression socks. I only wear them pre and post running though. Can’t seem to enjoy wearing them while running. I might need a larger size. They give me muffin top knees LOL!

  2. I a so boring when it comes to my socks, they are all white and I think they are Champion. I have yet to try compression socks, maybe one day. I would totally put the gift card towards a kayak, it has been on my wish list for a long time now. Yes on the lunch break most days, but it’s only 30 minutes so not much time to do anything besides eat.

  3. I love socks! I have every color you can imagine except white! Ha ha. The socks I wear depend on the outfit I wear. If I wear a running skirt, then I like knee high socks, like Crazy Compression or Pro Compression. If I am wearing capris, I like to wear My Soxy Feet socks. With a $20 GC, I would buy nutrition because not only am I addicted to socks, I also have a Nuun addiction! And finally, on my breaks? I RUNch!

    • I’m intrigued with the My Soxy Feet! Yep, I think I’m going to get some sport beans and nuun! That’s a great idea.
      Love that you RUNch!
