Today, as I was minding my own business, working on a client project, I noticed that my wallet was sitting on my desk. It looked kind of lonely and bored:
Lonely and bored wallet.
So I picked it up and thumbed through it, and found a VISA gift card sitting in it that hadn’t been activated yet – it still had the full $125 on it. Hmmmmm…
Now what can I spend this on?!? Since I just bartered for a new pair of Mizuno Women’s Wave Rider 17 Running Shoes in a Garage Sale group that I belong to, I no longer need new running shoes. My beloved Saucony Virratas have about 1000 km’s and are now holy and really really stink. Oh wait, I know….
Remember the half marathon that I was debating signing up for? Well it looks like I found the answer to that debate in the form of that VISA gift card. Hubby had already said that he had no problem with bringing the three girls to hockey that morning, so the only thing standing in my way was confidence in my ability to finish the race, and $96 (why on earth are races so expensive? Shouldn’t there be a lower price option for those that don’t want yet another running jacket?).
So it looks like I made my decision and I’m officially in “taper mode”.
So yeah – next Sunday I’m running a half marathon, whether I’m running or not. I’m hoping that the results of this race gives me the proverbial kick in the pants to REALLY start training.
What’s the craziest thing your credit card and laptop ordered for you?
