I recently heard that a new ASICS store is going to be opening up in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. The location is intriguing, as well - it will be located right across the street from the new Nike running store that just opened up a few weeks ago. Oooh, let the competition begin!
As I've mentioned before, I'm a huge fan of the Asics Gel Cumulus series. This store may or may not result in the addition of a few more members to my running shoe collection in the near future...
2. Leftover choices
In an attempt to improve my diet and eat more healthfully, I haven't had deep dish pizza in probably six months. Yes, you read that right. SIX MONTHS!!!
My deep-dish pizza hiatus ended up coming to a crashing halt this afternoon. My workplace had a lunchtime team meeting and someone decided to order Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza, salad, and cookies. Oh my goodness. I ate two pieces of pizza and could have kept going, but didn't want to eat myself sick.
In typical fashion, they ordered way too much food for the number of meeting attendees. Not to fear, though. Food in my office never goes to waste. We put the leftover food in the kitchen for people to help themselves.
As if they could smell the pizza coming from a mile away, people piled into the kitchen from every which way. The pizza was gone in about two seconds flat. It was like a shark-feeding but even bloodier and more aggressive!
Plenty of leftover salad was still available when I departed the office for the day, though. Go figure.
3. Decisions, decisions
After much debate, I am not going to be making my race costume debut at Disney this weekend. Maybe another time. I am, however, planning to wear an orange shirt (pictured here) with my pink-and-orange shorts (pictured here). This is a far cry from my usual black or grey shorts with a solid shirt - so I am making at least some progress, right?
I am also debating whether or not to take these lovable Disney characters along for the ride this weekend? On one hand, they would take up a lot of room in my bag... but on the other hand, it IS their hometown...
