I broke down and bought a watch...not just any watch, an Ironman watch. In no way shape or form am I saying this watch is the most precious piece in my jewelry collection. It was actually pretty cheap, and bought at my beloved Target. It's not a fancy GPS watch, I have the USATF.org site to track my distance and other things I would rather spend the money on (this site is pretty much my wish list and a GPS watch has not appeared...ever).
The reason this watch is a big purchase for me is because I bought it for running: to actually time myself running a mile so I can know what is an improvement from that point. What is happening to me?! It was only a 9 week training program but who have I become?!
But my friends are crazy if they think I am running the half-marathon next year!
