4 Miles Plus ?

First let me say, Yeah!!! DH is home.  I was so happy to see him I cried.  Yes that is right, cried.  The relief I felt as soon as he walk in was too much.  After I calmed down I promptly handed off the kids and put my running shoes on.  See Ya!

Out the door I went and walked up the hill for my warm up and then started to run.  It felt so good!!!  It is a cool and partly sunny day, perfect.

After just over a mile, I looked at my GPS.  Now my GPS is an app on my phone.  This is the second one I am trying.  The first one I used had me running 141 miles in 48 minutes.  No I didn't type it wrong, that is what it said after a slow but steady 4 mile run.  Ok, that one is gone.

On to app number two.  It worked great the first time.  The second time I ran with it, it said I went .53 miles in 30 minutes.  Now I know I am slow, but come on!  And that brings me to today.

Todays, run was awesome.  I needed and wanted it and nothing was stopping me.  I felt good, my knee feels good and the music was great!  After about a mile and a half, I checked my GPS and saw that it said 0 miles.  I was soooo mad.  It took everything I had to not throw it and smash it into the road.  Ok, back to running.

I did a route that I had done before so I know that it was 4 miles, but the ? is because I started running a little before my usual start.  I am guessing it was about .25.  All in all, it was the best run I had in a long time and I am thankful that I was able to get it in before all the company and excitement.

So, Santa, if you are reading this, please, please bring me a Garmin GPS running watch.  I promise I will be good and I made your favorite cookies.  Thank you, have a safe flight.

I hope all your runs this weekend are good and I hope you get everything you asked for.

Run strong, think big!


  1. So glad your dh is home!! Enjoy some extra running while you can. Hope Santa brought you the watch. :)

  2. No watch, but he got me a pink iPad Nano and he had it engraved. I love it! Hope you had a nice Christmas also.
