New Kicks! (and a brief vent)

I just need to vent for a second about traffic. It is horrible. Absolutely ridiculous. It took me 1 hr 40 mins to get down to the Rockville office this morning and over 2 hours to get home. (thank goodness I only go here every now and then) That is 3 hrs and 40 mins in my car, in traffic.

And for all those with EZPass out there - doesnt it kill you when people STOP in the ezpass lane?? It kills me - literally makes me boil inside. There is a reason why they invested in the whole EZPass thing, so people could go through quicker and easier and NOT HAVE TO WAIT! People that stop in the EZPass lane do not deserve EZPass - they should just wait in the long line since they are going to stop anyway. Seriously! Needless to say - I was not a happy camper when i got home and was in desperate need of a good run.

The highlight of my day was picking up my new running shoes (same ones I always get) and finding out they were on VIP secret sale. The secret sale is out on a sign for all to see. Not that secret if you ask me. But anyway, I will take it because I got these shoes for $69.99 and they are usually $90! Here are my Nike Structure Triax 11.I was only able to get in a 42 min run, but it felt great and the new shoes made such a difference. Looking forward to the heartwalk tomorrow and my 16 miler on sunday to break them in even more!

Dinner tonight with Kevin, his younger sister and mom was awesome. I was shy about taking pictures in front of them, so I didnt snap any, but I will make sure to take lots tomorrow at the heart walk and of some good eats! I am cooking tomorrow afternoon!

Hope everyone has a great friday night and thanks for letting me vent. I was feeling feisty at the beginning of this and now I feel better! :)

I know what you mean about traffic. When I first got my job in Orlando, I was still living with my parents and it took me an hour and a half each way to and from work! If you're not driving furing rush hour it only takes 45 minutes! I was so ready to move after two weeks of that hell.

Your shoes look great! I love new shoes!

Sweet kicks! :) That pic of pizza is totally making my mouth water!

Here is a funny recipe for you, from a Burmese restaurant I ate at tonight:

Tea leaves with oil
sunflower seeds
sesame seeds
peanuts
tomato
lettuce
some other kinds of nuts
lemon juice

It sounds crazy, but is dang good!

I get so shy about taking pics out with other people! I hear you about dc area traffic. I lived in Falls Church for a while and traffic made me crazy! I laugh now when people talk about "traffic" in Charleston. There is no such thing! Shoes are way cute

I HATE traffic. I'm such an angry driver. If I have to be in the car longer than normal because of traffic I complain pretty much the entire time. And you know, grumble and hit the wheel and yell at other drivers who can't hear me and such. It's a lot of fun...

Love the new kicks. They're quite spiffy. I need some.

I hate traffic! It can make a day turn bad. Glad you were able to get a run in. I like the new sneakers. Great deal too.
