Run Jeffrey Ruuuuun!

I participated in my first long distance (by my standards!) race last weekend. I ran one leg of a 21 mile race. My portion was about 4.5 miles. I was definitely there to make the slow people feel better about themselves, and naturally to make the upper half possible. But I did finish, and gave a 70 year old granny one heck of a run for her money when I decided to pour on the speed at the end. I have been running for about three months now, I am pushing over 3 miles a day now, which is a feat I am enormously proud of considering when I started I couldn’t even do a half a mile without having to stop to catch my breath. I am shooting to do my first 5K at the end of October, which, coincidently will be shorter than the leg I ran for the race I did last weekend..

I got a new GPS for my birthday! Thanks Mom and Dad, and Sis, and Teh Wife… They got me a Germin eTrex Legend Cx. A tiny little thing with a bright color screen. I took it out this weekend to see if it could locate the cache I couldn’t find with the Garmin GPS X, yup, it walked me right to it. For some reason the GPS X I borrowed from my Dad put me over 200 yards to the south of the cache, no wonder I didn’t find it. I am looking forward to going out again soon.

    Running for fun Jeffro? Maybe you should get the cool Nike shoes and an Ipod to be all “geeked” out.
