The Longest 16 Miles....History!!!!!

Well this has to be short as I'm trying to get packed and take Bonnie out to brunch before I have to leave for the airport.....I did 16 miles this morning...starting at 4:40 AM....yes that is right....got done in 3 hrs 40 minutes, pace 13:45 min/mile. That's the short end of the long thing. I feel mostly good...my shins aren't bothering me...I have one toe on my left foot that was bruised, but I'm basically ok.

The down side to this....my Garmin didn't work this morning and it seems that it isn't charging. So I need to contact Garmin about it...I've heard they have a great service department...I hope that is true.

YAY RANDY!!! ;D ;D ;D That's AWESOME!! Geez, it's going to be a long time before I get to a 16 miler LOL I'm glad you're feeling good too!

I;ve heard the same thing about Garmin customer service. Hopefully it's true. So you ran the whole time without it? OMG that would be pure Hell for me LOL

Nice job Randy. 16 is a pretty significant hurdle. I'm sorry but 4:40 a.m. is still the middle of the night, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Now I feel bad. When I say my prayers at night I ask the good lord to keep my garmin working and if one goes bad, let it be someone elses. I guess I tagged you.

Seriously, I hear garmin is very good about these things.

thanks for visiting my blog.
