Hello to the start of a new week!
Hello to the end of summer camps!
Angry Kid is all done with summer camp. He doesn’t start school until the Wednesday after Labor Day. He still has a little over 2 weeks of summer vacation left.
Hello to Long Runs!
I set my alarm on Saturday morning and got up at 4am, to run! I had an 8-mile run scheduled on my 1/2 Marathon Training program. I didn’t want to wait till late at night to do it, because of the heat. My Garmin Forerunner 305 would not turn on, and I almost ended up in tears, right before my run. I ended up using MapMyRun on my iPhone to track my distance. I finished my run before my husband had to leave for work that morning.
Goodbye to my Garmin Forerunner 305!
I knew that it was slowly dying. I bought it over three years ago, almost four. I did some research and realize that I purchased it in November of 2008. I think that I got my money’s worth.
Hello Summer BBQ’s and FROYO!
I went to a friend’s house for a summer BBQ and to celebrate her starting nursing school. I will miss my friend and almost former co-worker, Jen, but I wish her the best.
It was super hot on Saturday also. I had to get a little treat from Yogurtland. It had strawberries in it. That totally counts as healthy, right? Just ignore the crushed up Butterfinger and the gummy bears, ok!
Hello Garmin Forerunner 310XT!
With the recent death of my Garmin Forerunner 305, I needed a new GPS watch for running. It is too difficult to use my phone with tracking because I put in the pocket of my fuel belt and cannot look at the distance/pace/etc. without stopping to pull it out of the pocket.
I researched all of my options for GPS running devices/watches and decided that I did not want one with a touch screen. I chose the Garmin Forerunner 310XT because of the non-touch screen capabilities.
I told Angry Husband that I NEEDED to buy a new Garmin before Tuesday night, which is my next scheduled run. I got this little orange and gray baby last night. I love new toys. I cannot wait to run with it, tomorrow night!
Hello Itty Bitty Teeny Tiny Ponytail!
I was finally able to get my hair into somewhat of a ponytail on Saturday and today. I used between 6-8 snap clips to keep all of the hair up plus gel and some hair spray. I’m trying to compete in the hair Olympics with all of those gymnasts. All I need now is some spray glitter to make it sparkle.
Hello to catching up from the weekend, and past week, as usual!
Hello to chaos!
