First, I have gotten myself a Road I.D. I have been wanting to get one for over a year but it has always seemed to be low on priorities when it came to spending my running budget. Shoes, socks, race entry fees, and race weekend costs always came first. With all the running I usually do in the early mornings, late evenings, and all alone. I probably should have gotten one earlier. They really are worth it and don't cost much at all. Plus usually you can get discounts from races. If you don't get a Road I.D., than at least keep some I.D. of some sort on your person. The best idea I've heard so far is using your business card and just writing emergency contact information on the back. Just remember boys and girls, safety first.

I believe I am on the road to recovery and am showing progress. I was able to show restraint while I was at the Reebok store the other day shopping for back to school shoes for the kids. Being around all the workout clothes and running shoes was a huge temptation. Especially since everything seemed to be on sale. But I was able to leave the store without buying anything for myself. So, in the meantime everyone has to continue putting up with the future race pics with me wearing the same running outfit.
Now, to find me a hydration pack. ha-ha
So what do you do with the free time during injury or race recovery?
