Happy 4th~ Does Anyone Want to Buy a Garmin?


Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 3m 9:50/pace, 15 abs, 

Wednesday: 25 min chest/shoulders, 15 legs, 10  abs,

Thursday: 4.1m 8:56/pace

So, I started keeping track of pace while i’m out. I haven’t tried to run fast or keep any type of pace since I don’t have a real idea of what my pace is right now. It’s all about time on my feet for the next few weeks. The speed will come back. I had it once and i’ll have it again when i’m ready for it. Yesterday I did a few strides at the end of my run all 3 were in the 5:30-6:10 range. Even if only a for a few seconds it felt great to open up my stride and dig.

Tired, but getting used to AM running

My Facebook blew up this week with race photos from a few close people. My nephews for starters.. I almost cried when I saw these pictures. I’m so proud of these kids! They ran a 60 meter race. I can’t believe how jealous I am that they were on a track.


Brant getting in the zone

And here’s Mason, too fast for cameras!


And Jaxon, who was apparently scared of the starting horn.


Then my friend Matt from Indiana ran his first 5k & placed 2nd in his age group! I remember not too long ago when he told me he just started running… love it!

And finally Andrea, an old friend from high school is in training for her first half! She’s dating a marathoner, so naturally this would happen haha.

For all the runners out there, old, new and fresh to death, I have a Garmin Forerunner 110 i’m selling right now on Ebay because I don’t use it. If you’re interested head over and throw a bid down. It’s only 11 months old and used about 15x.

I know it’s the 4th, but all I want to do is workout, run & drink beer. I guess i can since it’s a day to celebrate doing whatever the heck i want. Good deal.

  1. I love seeing little kids running – I saw a few kids ~5 out on the waterway when I was in Houston, just running around, and the mom in sandals trying to keep them wrangled. THAT is the spirit I try to capture whenever I go out running!

    Good luck selling the 110 – great watch, I really love the FR-15 … and Polar Loop … and Magellan Echo … I have problems with technology 🙂

    And no song today? Oh well, for the fourth I’ll give you one my younger son has been listening to all day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxDdEPED0h8&feature=kp

  2. Thanks for featuring me on your blog Cori 😀 ! Hope you had a great 4th of July

  3. That’s all I want to do most days! Haha or drink wine. I love seeing kids get into running. And non-runners get into running. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  4. Yay for a little speed! It was Independence Day so you have the freedom to celebrate however you wanted to. 🙂 Mine involved some running and beer drinking.

  5. Workout, run and drink beer – isn’t that just a regular day? It’s always so cool when your friends become runners – unless they’re faster than you and in your age group. When I first saw your title I thought – wow she is just going to run by feel from now on! she’s crazy!
