um, so i broke the hiatus. and i did so knowingly. i feel like this is my confessional booth.
i’ve picked up jogging as a healthy habit, and try to go three or four times a week now that the weather is nice. i thought about cycling home from my new job in may, and while i like this idea, i also think that it’s just the right distance (5.2km) for a jog as well.
i convinced myself that i had to practice yesterday. except i realized that there was a dilemma at stake: what the heck was i to do with my stuff!?
armed with a small mesh grocery bag that had jogging pants, a notebook, pencil case, water bottle and my wallet, i made my way over to mec [mountain equipment co-op], which is basically a mecca for athletic and outdoor gear.
15$ later, i had this gorgeous little backpack, which is far better reviewed than many of its counterparts.
it did the job quite well! it has a chest strap and waist strap that stay cinched as i ran, and my water bottle didn’t fall out of the side pocket.
i broke the hiatus, and i do feel guilty. but, i also ran my best time yet.
