So.... you may have noticed that fancy schmancy little hoo ha to the right, that details my last run? Look, it's RIGHT THERE!! How cool is that? I had a super sweet Santa give me this to keep much better track of my runs and I have to say it is super addicting! I took it out for its inaugural spin today and after much fidgeting and crap I got the hang of pausing (for traffic- it's not fair to bring down my averages b/c of stupid stop lights!!) and volume etc. Plus having the whole thing strapped to my arm was kinda weird. But I checked it during my run and saw that my pace was MUCH lower than I had thought so that really put some pep in my step to keep it up! Not sure where I was when that giant dip hit- I think it was the big icy hill by the park- I had to walk a bit it was kind of dangerous with the speeding cars! Then, when I was almost done I saw I had only run 4.88 miles and said 'screw that, I want to do at least 5' so I ran around the block.
I know I am going to love having this to help me! Steve is looking forward to designing some challenges between us, though I am not sure what exactly. He is like the Flash and I am just NOT!! We'll see what we cook up! Or we can team up and challenge some of YOU!! :)
Now Steve has challenged me to a run-off- to see who can run the farthest in the next 14 days starting tomorrow! He is SO going down!! I love a challenge.... this should be fun!
