How awesome is my boss? So awesome that after the whirlwind of work travel, she gave me (in addition to a nice cash bonus) new running gloves and socks, as some incentive to get back into my running routine, since it was interrupted and had basically died.
I test-drove the gloves and socks on Monday morning when I ventured out in the cold for my first run in about a month.
The gloves are awesome – kept my hands nice and warm, without being sweaty at all. Now I just need a similar product for my ears (perhaps the matching hat!), because holy hell it’s frickin’ freezing at 6:00am!
The socks were great too – thin, comfy, dry-fit wicking material, unique left-right specific padding, and “the Nike Swift technology provides advanced aerodynamics to reduce drag and help you run more efficiently.”
That’s right. Ankle drag. That’s what makes me so slow. Not doughnuts, ankle drag.
Incentive and excuses! It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
