I hope you had a wonderful Christmas celebration with family, friends and lots of goodies to celebrate this time of year. I had 22 people over for a wonderful Danish/French/American Christmas meal.
I am so proud of my husband, Duke. He started running in April, and has lost 65 pounds. He runs daily, anywhere from 5 to 16 miles. This has made a huge difference in how he feels and in the way he now eats.
In order to stay motivated, Duke signs up for 5K and 10K races every month or so, and just registered for his first marathon next June.
I HATE running, and have always said, “I cannot run, my legs won’t move,” until two weeks ago when I decided to run a little, walk a little, run then walk, etc.
I borrowed Duke’s Garmin to see how far I could run, and was thrilled when it displayed, 1.4 miles. Well I did walk a little as well, but don’t tell anyone.
So for Christmas Duke bought me a Garmin watch, and I just downloaded “Map My Run.” I guess he really wants me to run, and with a purple watch–yes, he did try to get a turquoise one–I shall keep running as a warm-up before I go to the gym to lift weights. Yes, I refuse to give up the gym, and doubt I shall be training for a marathon in the next 5 years.
Anyway, I did eat a little too much yesterday, so as soon as I hit Publish, I shall run around the block with my new Garmin Forerunner 10.
What about you? Do you run?
