Last week (before I got my necrosis scare) I ventured out with my mom to get a new pair of shoes. Throughout high school, I ran countless miles in Nike Shox and lost my fair share of toe nails. After going to a running store, I immediately fell in love with Brooks and have been wearing them ever since. After trying on countless pairs of shoes, I finally made the switch to Saucony. Heaven on my feet.
I have narrow feet and I think they were moving around too much in the Brooks. I love the width at the toe but I think it was contributing a little bit to the knee pain in my left knee. Since I’ve switched over, I realize how much this shoe fits my foot better and gives me more of a “stable” platform to run on.
After a week of laying around and freaking out over possibly having necrosis, it was amazing to be able to go to my first Eagle’s game in over three years. I used to go to multiple games every season before my knee surgery since my dad is a season ticket holder. I missed it so much and spending time with my dad sans arguments was even better.
Before we went to the stadium, I researched vegetarian options at the Linc and found out they were voted the most vegetarian friendly stadiums in 2011 and 2012. Awesome! I got myself a veggie dog and it was good but for some reason I felt really weird eating something which is meant to taste like meat. It was just a really odd feeling to be eating “pork” even if it wasn’t pork. Also, I enjoyed some Chickie and Pete’s fries with my dad.
I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t have any bad thoughts while eating the fries. My dad said he didn’t want any at the beginning of the 3rd quarter so I opted for BareFruit Apple Chips. Then, when I went to get a drink he told me to go get fries too. Immediately I thought, “But I just ate my snack”. Then, I told myself to get over it and it’s only one day. So, enjoy the fries I did because those babies are good. The Old Bay seasoning gets to you fast because those things are COATED, but I thoroughly enjoyed them until I was satisfied.
Off to go cuddle with my little guy! It was a great weekend because this was the first time I got out of my house to do something far away. It gave me anxiety because at any moment my knee can really start bothering me, but dammit, I made sure to make it this year. Suck it, knee. (Okay, not really don’t get mad at me and start giving me trouble.) Off to go cuddle.
For my vegetarian friends, does eating products which are supposed to taste like meat freak you out a little bit?
I just find it odd to be eating a meat-flavored meal when I don’t eat meat…
What is the last big sports event you’ve attended?
