17 days until the Detroit Freepress half Marathon

Detroit Press/Flagstar Marathon

I haven't run yet but have done a couple of bike rides on the trainer. My knees are sore (especially the right one)... it's really hard to tell if it's from running or my job. I am so excited to run on Saturday!!!!! I can't really blog about much else as I am in runner's limbo. If all goes well I would like to plan a 10-12 mile run before the race.

I have found a great new online store that specializes in women's athletic gear and clothing. It can be found at www.Athleta.com

AthletaIn order to research this store I had to make a purchase... strictly to see how they do business... wink, wink :) The company ships from the United States. I must say that the shipping rates were pretty good..... Under $7 for my purchase (less than $50 before tax and shipping) and they ship via Untied States Postal Service. I hope that they impress me.... they have some great sale items and I would like to shop there again. Will keep you posted!!!

Speaking of sales... Skirt Sports is having a promotion for the month of October. Each day one item is marked down by 50%.... I am hoping that the roller girl skort goes on sale so I can stock up.

Thanks for the golf ball technique as it felt good this evening after my run. Being a golfer I have plenty around the house.

You're welcome!

I love Athleta! Right now I'm coveting their long sleeve twist top (a cheaper alternative to tattoos, and far less painful!).

Glad to hear some good feedback about Athleta! I am eagerly awaiting my order!!
