My favorite running store in NYC is JackRabbit. Never mind that they do great foot strike analysis and recommend great shoes without a sales pitch. Who cares that they have great customer service? The thing I LOVE about JackRabbit is their logo. I mean come on! A RUNNING RABBIT who appears to be a LOP bunny (hard to tell with all of the velocity going on, but Mario thinks if he sat still for a moment Mr. JackRabbit would definitely be a lop). Just so you know, that biking, swimming and yoga bunny came after the original running rabbit. I miss JackRabbit dearly. They were kind enough to mail me (sans postage charge) some JackRabbit gear over to San Francisco. I got an email from them a couple weeks back with this snippet:
Oh, how I wish I were in NYC now to swipe up a bunch of these babies. I feel so Earthy Green when I use my reusable shopping bags. Such a warm fuzzy feeling. And how much better would that warm fuzzy feeling be with a JackRabbit bag?! I don't have the gall to ask them to mail me one of these puppies, but Boyfriend is going to NYC in July and I'm really hoping they still have a few left.
I got out twice on the bike this weekend for a total of 26 miles. For the first time ever, my total bike mileage for the week (40.4 miles) was higher than my running mileage (34.1 miles). Today I ran about 5.3 miles with intervals. I'm going to try to keep up the speed work this month until I re-enter the structured training program in July. Tonight we're planning on watching "Sex and the City." I had wanted to watch the entire series again before the movie, but settled for re-watching the last two episodes. Hope it's worth paying movie theatre prices!
