Run run run

Today, I went for a run in a new pair of shoes that left me with huge blisters. As I finished cleaning them up so they could heal, I limped to my bed to take a nap. I was woken by the fire alarm. My building was having a drill and we couldn't use the elevators. I live on the 9th floor. FML

your apartment has fire drills? I've never heard of that. I've had fire alarm tests in my building but never drills where I had to leave. If I was you I would of just ignored it. They can't force you to if you don't want to

Just go to sleep. They don't even need to know you were IN the building.

That gotta hurts. :( I never knew trainers could give you blister though. If it's heel or something else I understand.

I completely feel ops pain. I paid to have my gait tested so that my running shoes were tailored to my running style. I broke them in at the gym like I was supposed to but about 4 miles into my first proper run in them I was in absolute agony. He'd sold me trainers with support I didn't need and every time my foot landed it was rubbing. I had to walk back barefoot covered in blisters because I couldn't keep them on my feet.

Yeah seriously that's ridiculous, I've never had a fire drill in any building where I ever lived. Even my college dorm doesn't have fire drills.

We had one fire drill in my dorm. and one fire. at 4 in the morning. and i lived on the 7th floor!

He could live in a dorm. We have fire drills at my dorm and if they find out you didn't go outside you can be written up.

I live on the 21st floor. It sucks to take the stairs...

So don't do their stupid fire drills. Start playing loud music

I hope people like you burn to death.

..A little harsh maybe, 39? And a bit uncalled for. They're drills. Nobody's forcing you to not do them.

Just go to sleep. They don't even need to know you were IN the building.

agree with #3 you shoulda stayed in youre dam room, unless they do a count, but still they could have easily thought u wernt there... iono op.. you shouldnt have done it

good lord, that sounds like you live at UNC. I was on the tenth floor, i had that happen numerous times. It sucks.

You guys are idiots. Why risk it being a real fire and get roasted up on the 9 th floor?

Here's a tip - break in your shoes a bit before you go exercising in them. Your feet and your shoes will take a while to get adjusted. Now if you're just a kid, I can understand. If not, then YDI.

ugh, fire drills

Fuck this, we had one at 2am, I live on the 21st floor. 7th floor? I laugh at the people who ride the elevator to anything under the 10th. Weak

Right? And they're the people that wonder why America has such a high obesity rate.

im sure you have other shoes
