I am so excited that I calibrated the foot pod that goes with my Garmin FR60. Another blogger, DC Rainmaker, that I started to follow is really a technical "geek" (and I use the term geek in the most affectionate way). He has an amazing ability to turn all of the technical manuals into easy instructions for the average person. So I was able to use my Christmas present. And I figured out that mapmyrun.com is not as accurate as I had thought. In fact it was almost 1/2 mile off. That means something when you are running far. So I am excited.
Not sure how much running I will be doing today. I am such a wimp in the snow. I love the way it looks, but I am scared I am going to fall. I have weak ankles. I managed almost 4 miles on Monday and got another 3 in yesterday, but the snow we got last night kept the kids home from school today. Not sure they will ride their bikes in the snow. Maybe I could pull them like a horse in their sleds... now that would be a workout.
And Tricia is doing a giveaway for Oiselle Running Apparel which is an environmentally friendly company. Be sure to check out her blog.
Finally, I have some really exciting news... for me at least! I weighed myself yesterday morning and was 151.8. I am almost out of the 150s. I am so excited. I have been in the 150s and higher for the last 9 years. I am overwhelmed with joy and know that the difference this time is truly God! Praise God for loving me so much.
