Happy Valentine's Day

I ate WAY too much chocolate today.

Running + lots of chocolate candy + wind = not a great run

My stomach was feeling funny the whole time but I made it outside for a run tonight at 5pm. I love how the sun is setting later and later so I can run in the light instead of darkness!

****

I am way behind the times and still have a regular watch that just tells time and has a stopwatch. I use a Ironman Timex watch that has a stopwatch with a split feature which I love because it makes running intervals on the track so easy!

Over Christmas and New Years I lost it! I knew I had packed it but between spending time at my house and Brian's I just lost track of it. I had searched my apartment, my parents house but there was no sign of it! I had almost given up hope and thought about buying a new one.

Well Brian surprised me with a Valentine's Day dinner last night in his home town so we ended up spending the night at his parents. This morning I was packing up my things and happened to look under the bookcase in my room. Well underneath was my watch!! I was so happy to find it and ran with it tonight! I feel complete again!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Yay for finding your watch! That's exciting, I hate when I feel like something is off especially when running.
I'm enjoying the extra sunlight too! Can't wait for springgg

Molly said...

I thought I was the last runner to hold out on using a fancy watch...half the time I use the time on my ipod as a guide, I like to just get out and run. Happy you found you watch!

Marlene said...

I'm right there with you on the chocolate. Ugh!

YAY for finding your watch!

Laura said...

Ugh, my coworkers have brought in chocolates and I just keep eating and eating... I know how you feel!

Thanks for the kind comments, and I'm happy to get back in touch :)

Jeri said...

omg I'm glad you found your watch! I always feel lost when my garmin's battery is low/dead and then I have to find my old school watch. If I can't find that I feel completely out of sorts. :p

And I'd imagine chocolate is no good for the tummy pre-run, but dang it, it sounds good! :D

If you love your watch that much, you are in big trouble if/when you get a Garmin! Glad you found it!

Jon (was) in Michigan said...

Too much chocolate? Not sure how that happens. Maybe it was bad chocolate? That does happen.

Glad you found your watch. :)

Megan said...
