I sure do like getting new stuff.  My wife has entered the Starbuck's 5k Run for Women race this summer and decided to hit the Running Room for some new shoes and running gear.  She came out with sunglasses, tights, tops, a jacket and of course, running shoes.  She's also signed up for the Learn to Run clinic.  I'm so proud of her for signing up and I know she's going to do great.

Of course, the old adage states that if she goes shopping, so do I hehe, so I got me some new stuff too.

I got a couple new matts for our workout room as well as this wall mount pull up bar which I have yet to assemble.  Also picked up some push up bars there.  Fatboy Kris has led me to the Scooby Workshop site and I've been doing a lot of reading and I'm going to start including some weight lifting workouts on top of my normal cardio.

Then I grabbed this rack and full set of dumbells.  It has 5's, 10's, 15's, 20's, 25's and 30's.  The rack I got as a deal because they never had any left in stock so I took the display model.  There's not a scratch on it and was already assembled for me.  Plus the discount for it being out on the floor already made this a pretty sweet deal.

Now of course, the wife was out getting runners for her race this summer, so I decided to grab myself a nice pair of Nike's for my walks (and someday runs).  These are the Nike Air Pegasus+ 28.

I also decided to pick up a Polar FT7 heart rate monitor as well.  This little baby will tell me a lot more accurately how many calories I'm actually burning as well as if my heart is in the right zone.  Hopefully it'll also tell me if I'm about to have a heart attack while I'm on the elliptical LOL.
