1. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. My family and I had a great time. We ate a lot of
junk good food, set off lots of fireworks and the kids did lots of swimming and had a great time forming a conga line in the jacuzzi!
2. I went for a 12 mile run to kick off my 4th of July and I think I am loving my new Mizuno Wave Rider 15's! I finally caught a break from the hot weather and I really enjoyed my run. My Wave Rider's are so light, very comfortable and they provide just the right amount of support for my feet. I have only ran in them twice but my past experience with trying new shoes shows that the next day is a good indicator of whether or not they will work for me. I am not in love with the color I bought but I have been looking at the different colors Mizuno offers and now I want another pair!
3. I drive a Prius so unless you drive a clean air vehicle you might not understand why I am loving these parking spaces that are located in a busy shopping center near my house. I just pull right in and don't have to waste any time looking for a parking spot!
These parking spaces are actually closer than the handicapped parking and I do get annoyed when non-clean air vehicles park in "my" spaces! I have also seen special parking spaces designated for expectant moms, which I think is pretty cool too! Is it weird that I am a runner yet I am excited about getting a parking space that cuts down on my walking?? I feel kind of lazy parking in these spaces but I do it anyway!
How was your 4th of July? Do you drive a clean air vehicle? Do you have any specially designated parking areas like the "Clean Air Vehicle" or "Expectant Mom" spaces where you live?
