Hey guys. I may have a problem. I may be too competitive. Tonight I came home and Kathy had not started supper yet, so I told her I was going to go for a walk for a couple of miles. I got a mile in and then Lauren wanted to go on my next lap, so I invited her along. About a 1/4 of a lap in, she decides she can walk faster than me, so I prove her wrong. She tries doing a half run to try to beat me, so I show her she can't again. So she says "I KNOW I can run faster than you!" So I say go for it. We had started up the hill I talk about all the time and so when we took off and I started to beat her, she claimed that it was because it was up hill. So she then tried to ambush me most of the way up the hill and I still beat her, so she then claimed she had a cramp because she had already ran. So we go on around to the flat part of my block which goes in front of my house, and she once again tries to outrun me! I once again out sprinted her and beat her to the door! It was pretty funny, but now I am sore! My abs are killing me! But all I am taking from this, I outran my 9 year old! haha.
I also think my POS Wal Mart high tops have been doing a poor job of taking care of my feet when I walk. I put on my Skechers for walking today and even though they are not high tops, they seemed to work a lot better for my walking this morning at Wal Mart. I am wondering if my ankles could be hurting because of those crappy shoes! I will be hacked if I wasted twenty bucks and have slacked off on running for having bought the damn shoes!
