So I'm not sure if anywhere else in the country was like this, but this "fall" Atlanta has been...well...finicky.
That's a good word for it.
One day, its perfect fall, 50+ degrees and clear. The next its 80 and hot and muggy. And miserable.
December 1st rolls around and mother nature goes "oh shit, I guess I should make it cold" and BAM we have a 30ish degree day with wind. It was pretty miserable. And the whole time I'm wondering "how am I ever going to run in this weather.."
Either way, I went against my loved ones/friends and ran yesterday and didn't wait the 1-week-rest period after my half marathon (which I still owe pictures of my awesome medal). I just went out for 20 minutes to test the new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11's. I sadly had to retire my GTS 10's right after the half. Not going to lie I got a little teary-eyed. They've done me well for the past 6 months and I've thoroughly worn them out. That and I almost had to wear RED shoes. Thank god Pacers had them in blue. I can't wear the forbidden colors of U[sic]GA.
I always thought they looked pretty new, and then I put my new ones against my old ones. Many my shoes are white. Gotta get out on the trails and fix that!
Anyway the new shoes are great so far. I want to get more miles in them before I do an official-ish review.
Speaking of miles. Mine have been too low this week. Here's a cute video that always makes me want to run more.
Time for some more studying/finishing up at work then maybe a short run before trivia tonight.
Till next time, run happy y'all!
