Got me some new kicks 

Love me some Chicago summer sunsets

I don't really have any major goals for this next week. Got some mile repeats on the books, and that is really the most exciting workout to look forward to.

Oh yes, and my new neon orange boyfriend Newton and I will have a few short dates this week and slowly become more comfortable with one another before I leave those trusty Brooks in the past. Full review to come in a few weeks.


  1. I am excited to hear all about your orange boyfriend. I keep thinking about dating a pink one soon...

  2. Way to go! Great training! Love the pics!

  3. oooh, eager to hear about your new kicks. Your sunset pic is gorgeous! And your week makes me feel lazy as usual. Well, in the world of running but chasing after 3 kids makes me feel very unlazy. :)

  4. Wow, wow, wow! Your mileage always blows me away!
    I just ordered the Brooks T7 Racer. They're minimal and I will ease into them with some shorter runs and my speedwork on the treadmill. I can't wait to see how you like the Newtons.

    Gosh, I still can't get over that weekly mileage! You rock!

  5. your feet look so happy!! and they sorta match the beautiful sunset pic!

  6. I say this every week - but you are such a rockstar!!! I can't wait to hear about your Newton love :)

  7. nice wk of training and great pic.

  8. I am STILL loving those shoes. And your mileage. :) Nice job!

  9. I look forward to hearing more about your experience with the Newtons. Have you thought of adding a page for training related posts? I ask because I just came up to speed with week 1 - 8 the hard way using the archive. I vote for an interval day next week, maybe progressive 400, 800, 1200, etc... or just a lot of 400s - with the Newtons of course. Can we vote on your training for next week?

  10. I can't believe you hold these 70 plus weeks so well! Very admirable my friend!! Let's catch up tomorrow!!! Xx

  11. Wow you are so inspirational my dear, keep up the amazing work!

  12. YOU kicked some major mileage ass!

  13. Great week of running!! Way to go!!

  14. Great miles girl! I tried to comment on your wicked awesome tempo the other day but my phone wouldn't let me sign into your blog for some reason. Back to that post quickly. That was some fantastic writing there. I bookmarked it. Very great job of sharing your thoughts. Oh-and 21 @7:38. SH*T!!!

    I wonder if there will ever come a day that I view mile repeats as an exciting workout. Let me think....NOPE-not likely. I will say I'm finally coming around with the speed a tiny bit lately. Not fast but I really enjoyed my track workout last week (afterwards) and oddly I am looking forward to my 800's this week more than my progression run which is generally my favorite...

    Have fun with Newton. Hope he treats you well. I just don't have it in me to cheat on Brooks quite yet:) If he screws me over this fall, we'll see-ha!

    Keep up the great work Britt!

  15. um amazing mileage! you are amazing you are totally getting a PR!!!

    and yayy cant wait for a review on these shoess!

  16. Ok, and I complained about 10 miles yesterday...yikes! You rock with your mileage! You are definitely an inspiration!

  17. I can't wait to hear about your new kicks! And wow girl! You had a great week. Enjoy this cooler weather now :)

  18. Ooo, the newtons are so cute!

    I love that nighttime photo!

  19. I love that sunset picture. And your mileage is basically awesome! Way to go!
