The UPS man came today

And he brought me my new Garmin 305. I was going to go the the gym and run on the treadmill since it was so hot today. But, since I got my garmin I decided I could weather the 104 degree temps.

With a slight breeze and the sun falling in the western sky I strapped on my garmin and left my ipod at home. I ran west toward Desert Breeze Lake, one loop around the lake and ball fields and then back home for a 3 mile run. Still doing too much walking, but hey. . . it beats sitting at home in front of the tube.

Here's a picture, non running related of my wife Amy, me and my son Tyler. My daughter Emily was manning the camera. Notice the sign. We always park in the airport long term parking called - Roadrunner. How appropriate for a runner, even a runner like me.


The Gym: I got a postcard in the mail yesterday offering 6 weeks of membership for $19. So, today I marched on down to Pure Fitness and signed up. I had to go through the sales pitch. I don't think he liked it when I said I wasn't interested in a personal trainer and won't use the weight machines all that much. I just wanted the treadmill when it is hot and the pool to try some swimming.

9 Days

For the past 9 days I've done some kind of exercise. Ran, stationary bike, water jog or softball.

Did you hug the UPS man? I love my Garmin, and hope you like yours as much as I do.

Great price for the gym.

SWEET!!!!!!!! That is so awesome you got a Garmin!! Did you love it?

You have to tell me how to get that chart into your blog, I have been trying for months to do that!

See ya in the morning! I looked at the map up close and it looks like maybe we park by the tennis courts or the rec center? If that is not right let me know! :>) Thanks!
