There are a few things that I MUST have every time I go out for a run. Let’s take a peek, shall we? Allow me to model my goods.
iPod nano: There are a lot of people who can run without music and just go with the breath. I am NOT one of those people. I must have my tunes. Fresh updates to the playlist are constantly added to keep me moving. I have the newest version with video, but have never used it. It’s purple too, which is pretty sweet.
Incase Armband: How could I run with my Pod without an armband. This one does the trick.
Garmin 405: I only got this baby for Christmas, but cannot imagine being without it. I love my Garmin. I don’t have a name for it, but my virtual training partner? Well that’s a whole other conversation. This bad johnny tracks my mileage, pace and calories. I love love love my Garmin!
Road ID: I never leave home without it. It has my name and important contacts – home, husbo and mom – just in case of an emergency.
I also need a ponytail holder – which is on my wrist in that pic and was promptly put to use after this picture was taken. And then, I ran my fastest 3.1 miles ever. 25:01. I was soooo proud! I’m running a 5K at the end of May (after the Half) and was hoping on breaking 26 minutes, but it looks like I might just be faster!
After my speedy 5K, I came home to a little of this:
From NY to you…a delicious slice of pizza!
Here is a peek at yesterday’s 4.5 miles:
Here was last night’s dinner:
Turkey burger on a sandwich thin, roasted sweet potatoes and salad with a tasty brew.
For now, I have a cup of tea and will be watching some NCAA b-ball with the husbo and the pooch. I know my friend April is rooting for the Cats!
