New Toy & Great Walk

I am so lucky...I have a husband who actually listens when I speak/write. Remember last month when I wrote, "I think that when I get some extra cash I am also going to try to pick up a used Garmin Forerunner GPS sports watch (I want one BAD)"? Yeah, well, Scott remembered. I got home from work last night and my darling husband had a wonderful graduation gift for me.


Not my picture, but this is what it looks like.

It's a Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS/heart monitor watch! I was so excited. If it hadn't needed 3 hours to charge, I would have immediately gone out to try it out.

This morning I had to take it out for a spin.



Thankfully, I already had plans with Jessica to meet up at this beautiful wetlands preserve, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, to go for a long walk today. I was SO proud of Jessica! Even after she thought she couldn't go any further, she pushed herself to do another mile and we did over a 5K - about 3.4 miles. She is doing so well and I was thrilled to be there for her first 5K.

Thats cool, never heard of one. My friend is trying to convince me to do a half marathon in March, I am kinda scared...its been so long since I have run. I will definately have to work up to it.
