This week in running has been rather fun.
I got a new GPS watch (Garmin 230) and am having fun finding out all of it’s features. I can’t wait to program in an actual workout to have it beep at me when to do each interval. So high tech! My old watches had that capability but I never took the time to set it up or honestly, even look up how to do it. If I’m going to shell out $$ for the good stuff I should use it, right? Lol.
I’m really enjoying running with others lately. In fact, I only ran twice by myself in the past week. The time just goes by so much faster when you can chatter the whole time.
Last Sunday I ended up running 9 miles on the trails with two complete strangers. Or I should say we were complete strangers at the beginning of the run became friends after two minutes of running. Funny how that happens. It was a weird turn of events but it worked out great in the end!
Yesterday I met up with Nicole and Kailey for 8 miles of catching up. It’s funny that two years ago Kailey and I were preparing to leave for Hawaii for her first marathon. I still think that whole trip was one of the most memorable race experiences I’ve ever had. Or ever will.
It’s Sunday, so it’s meal planning day.
