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

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.

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.

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
