THREE RUNNING THINGS1. Not so Great
After being on the fence for months, I will not be signing up for the Great Race 10K in Pittsburgh next weekend. My family is hosting a brunch gathering that will conflict. This made the final decision easy.
2. New kicks come in fours
I finally started wearing my newest pair of running shoes (the Saucony Ride 8). They had been sitting in the box untouched since May. Craziness, right? I am loving that they have required no break-in period at all.

3) No shuffling
I got an email earlier this week that early registration has opened for the 2017 Shamrock Shuffle in honor of being halfway to St. Patrick's Day. Who knew?
I will probably be branded as a Chicago running heathen for saying this, but at this point I plan to pass on Shuffling next year. It's a fun race. However, I want to explore other options.
The next question is figuring out what those other options might be...
THREE OTHER THINGS
Yesterday, my office hosted a Guitar Hero and Wii tournament to raise funds for charity. Initially I was hesitant to participate due to lack of experience. I've never played Wii in my life, and I've only played Guitar Hero once (with my niece and nephew, who are resident experts). Here's a Throwback Thursday picture of my only Guitar Hero experience from EIGHT years ago:
2) Me Before You
When I was on the plane ride to Budapest, I watched a movie called Me Before You. In short, it is about a woman taking care of a quadriplegic. I had never heard of it before and WOW, what a story!!! It drove home very touching points about living life to the fullest. There were several emotional scenes which made me cry.
For Game of Thrones fans - Emilia Clarke plays the lead actress in this movie and she is the cutest, most adorable thing, ever. Quite the opposite from Daenerys Targaryen!

I always love a clever and humorous commercial. This one, featuring Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, has catapulted onto my list of all-time favorites.
I've already watched it about 25 times and I still burst out laughing every time I see it. AB is a natural!
Happy Thursday, everyone!!!
