A Race and A Purchase

Yesterday I participated in the Carnegie Mellon SCS Pretty Good Race. I placed 20th out of roughly 47 contestants. For about a half of a mile (the last stretch) I was a few feet behind some girl, but at the end I had enough juice left to sprint and pass her. Little did I know that she was the first girl to finish (6 seconds behind me).



I bought some new stylish running gear today at Dick's sporting goods store. Most importantly I bought new running shoes, namely Asics GT-2100 shoes. The box was improperly marked, so I only paid $59.99 instead of the normal $79.99 discount price ($89.99 when not on sale). I also bought a headband (to stop the nasty hair gel/sweat mixture from hurting my eyes while I run) and some expensive running shorts made out of some special fabric. Later that day I tested out my new gear. :-)
