Since last week I bragged on my little sister, today I must brag on middle sister!
This lovely lady also recently graduated from Texas Tech and is now gainfully employed at a TV station in Lubbock. (No, unfortunately they don’t put her on TV) I am so proud of her and even though I love my job, can’t help but be slightly jealous of hers. She has a determined heart and a passion that you just don’t want to mess with. Watching her intense love for the important people in her life has given me a new appreciation for all the people that I love and care about in my life. She’s the best bargin hunter/finder I have ever met and has the greatest knack for turning “Goodwill finds” into lasting decorations – it’s quite a talent!

My Garmin finally came!!!!
|don't mind the awkwardness|
After doing all of my training so far by logging miles with my phone I decided I guess I was serious enough to invest in one of these bad boys. I was tired of carrying my phone with me and even though it seemed accurate it was just too hard to manage my pace and distance on it. I did some research and spent some time comparing the different models. I never really considered anything other than a Garmin because well let’s face it, Skinny Runner uses a Garmin so I HAD to have one too! This comparison function on their website is a great tool and helped me pick out mine. From there I knew exactly what I wanted and found it on Amazon for a much better deal. My mom was gracious enough to purchase this new piece of my heart for a birthday/congratulations gift. Aren’t Moms the best? I immediately tore open the package when it came last week and quickly was able to figure out most of the settings.
I did have to read the user’s guide for a few things but it was so amazingly easy to customize and create a screen with exactly what I wanted to see during my runs on it. I have used it twice now and I am completely utterly one hundred thousand percent in love! It’s my favorite color and lucky for me I LOVE big watches! I cannot wait to use if for my next half marathon – I have become obsessed with pacing!
|you and me are going to have a nice long and loving relationship!|
And the last thing I’m loving today would be this book,
it is simply amazing! It’s easy to read and I cannot put it down. My mom got each of my sisters and I a copy and one for herself so that we can all read it together. Totally amazing book! And I agree with the cover: “This could be one of the most important pieces of fiction since To Kill a Mockingbird…If you read only one book…let this be it.” –NPR.org. Seriously, go read it!
