Three Thing Thursday - Did you enter my Pre Marathon Giveaway yet?

1. Dutch Fall weather has gone crazy. It's in the low 40's already and it's only October. Let's just say that this Winter's temps don't look promising. Long tights and a jacket for running already. I'm looking for a softshell for winter. And gloves. And a pair of softshell tights. And some Goretex running shoes. Brrrrrrrrr!
The Runningskirts.com Fall/Winter line has a cozy hoodie in it, that would be perfect as a midlayer. (Yep, midlayer, 'cause in this weather I will need to add a jacket). Can't wait for it to arrive in the mail!

2. I just got informed that there's a bedbug emergency going on in New York City. I did not know that. Apparently most of the hotels in NYC are dealing with this problem. Great. I'm not looking forward to meeting this cruel creature. In case you were wondering what a bedbug looks like, here you go:

Yeah, it looks evil. I really do hope that the hotel I plan on staying at has solved this bedbug problem for their hotel. If not, I'm pretty much screwed.

I am headed up to NYC as we speak. I checked out my hotel first on the "bed bug registry." Google it and you can see if yours is (hopefully not!) on the list!

OMGosh that bed beg almost got me to dry heaves. YIKES. I am big on checking my sheets as soon as I get to a hotel. It's a must.

eww, i know a lot about bed bugs. unfortunately i provided many meals for them while i was in college! when you get to your hotel look around the seem of the mattress, use a flash light and look around mattress, head board etc. I'm sure it'll be fine!

SO gross! i hope you don't have bed bugs. I keep hearing about this.

By the way your blog background is really pretty!

Silly Girl Running said...

@ MissZippy: I just did; thanks! Seems like I might be okay! :)

@ Emz: Will still check my sheets the minute I arrive at my hotel!

ewww gross! I hope you are bed bug free! Just stumbled across your blog from Emz's blog. So cute. I love that you do canicross with your dog we want to start doing that with ours soon - she's almost old enough to go on runs with me now!

@ Kelly: Thanks! :) Canicross is so much fun and my dog loves it. :) He starts wagging his tail when I even look at my running shoes. ;)
