So I have been struggling with cooking lately. I’ve run out of ideas and just haven’t been in the mood to cook which to me is strange as I LOVE to cook. In the past weeks I have been hearing great things about Hello Fresh and well we decided to try it out! So Here is our review! And Let me just say, This was AMAZE-BALLZ!!!

Star Wars 10K – Darth Vader
3:15am – What on god’s green earth is going off and why so God Damn early! I roll over and look at my phone its blinding bright with a note saying, ‘Get up Sucka you got miles to log!’ I roll over and stare at the ceiling trying to conjure up why I keep doing this to myself and I remember, ‘For the Love Of Running!’ I get up, and drag my butt to the bathroom and change. I grab my energy drink my ‘NEW YORK’ Bagel and peanut butter cup and head out. I get out to the buses and I see a long line.. and all I could think to myself is crap.. I hope they aren’t sending one bus at a time.. and sure enough that is exactly what they were doing. But, I think someone had to have said something because within 10 mins 2 double busses showed up and we were off…
Where to begin…. So part of me getting back to running was to sign up for a race that I would be full heart in and ready to go. That race would become, the Star Wars Darkside Challenge down at Walt Disney World. I was so nervous about taking on not only a 10K but a half marathon as well. With my knee still being questionable, I knew that if I stuck to my running plan that I would push through with no issues. At least, I had hoped! There was being stoked, to being in pain, to the real reason I had come back to Disney. Here is how it all went down. and it all started with an Upper Respitory Infection the day before I flew out. Thank god for working in the medical field.. Got my Z Pack and Away I went!
Since November 2nd after purchasing my Prophecy 3’s I’ve been rocking them like they were the shit…. Well, that was until I ran my first Half of the year and that totally changed my mind. But before I get into that, let me give you the good stuff that I liked about them. The Design is EPIC. I love the coloring, The idea of taking a Japanese blow fish into consideration on the markings, and they truly are a comfortable shoe for low mileage…… Now, that brings me to the bad of these shoes. Since March I have ran 6 halves… Pretty much all back to back. PR’ing every single time I ran. But thank god I had paced myself faster in the first half of a race because by mile 10 I felt as though I had no shoes on my feet and I was straight hitting pavement barefoot. IT SUCKED.. It was not comfortable what so ever. At the Long Branch Half I was pacing pretty friggin good and I was digging the vibe through out the whole entire race and at mile 10 my feet fell apart….. 2 weeks after that I did that Brooklyn half and by mile 9 my feet had enough. I felt something pop in my foot and Game Was OVER!!…. I had to walk the rest of the race.. I was SOOOO upset! and my feet, well they are still recovering. I guess for now these sneakers will become more of an everyday shoe than a running shoe. I was soooo hoping these would be my IT!!!
– on a side note, I did call mizuno to see what they could do for me… and well, never got a phone call back nor an email. Sweet!
