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!
