I'm not usually much of a diva...
this ones too hot,
this ones too cold,
this ones too big, etc.
But that's exactly how I've felt about my backpack.
I took the first one back because I overbought -
there was no way I needed 65L -
especially not one
that weighed almost 6 lbs
in and of itself!
The second one just didn't feel right either;
it hit my neck in the wrong place,
restricting my neck flexibility;
it also felt like I was carrying all the weight in my shoulders,
not my hips.
So back it went -
with profuse apologies
for being so high maintenance.
Truth be told however,
I was proud of myself for not 'settling';
for saying "this isn't right".
It's easier to do that, isn't it?
To make do,
to pretend its OK;
to say you'll get used to the things you don't like.
But I didn't.
I tried again -
and got someone who wasn't willing to settle either.
And then somehow,
you just know...
Numero Tres -
ding ding ding,
we have a winner!
I'm SO sure this time
that I even took the tags off!
I can start training in earnest now!
