Ok... I have to admit, this post is long overdue. But, today, I am a runner. Or, at least that is what Nate would have me believe. I ordered the Garmin Forerunner 205 last week (my wife "got it for me" for my birthday/graduation). Yes, I do realize there is a 405 coming out shortly. But, with one small child and another on the way, I just can't justify that kind of dough for a nice new toy. But, the 205 was manageable. So... it is supposed to arrive at work tomorrow. The irony of this all is that I am running on the track tomorrow. So, I don't even really NEED it. But, I'm probably gonna use it anyway.
Today was my last satellite free run in the foreseeable future. Unless, of course, the battery dies right before a run (I'm told this happens). Yikes!! Then what do I do? Oh yeah, right... what I've been doing for the last 15 months. Very cool. I'm so excited. I'm dubbing this the year of the satellite. I got a GPS for my car from my mom and a GPS for my running from my wife. What's next? If I can get my GPS to do my homework tonight, I'll be in the clear. Until then, I'm not actually graduated. One paper down, one to go. Better get typing, can't afford another night like last night (up until 2 am).
My last run pre Garmin- 3.23 miles, 27:15, 8:27 pace
