Time to say goodbye

I have been using Nike+ for well over a year now. While it get its share of criticism, I think for the price of 29 dollars it does quite well. It certainly has its place in the running world. However, it is not quite accurate enough for me anymore. Thus I have ordered a Garmin 305. Goodbye Nike+, we had some good times together.

Bring home the hardware

Well, I have finally figured out how to win a medal in a foot race. Keep running and get old. I ran the Spirit of Florence 5k, On July 4th, and finished second in my age group. I finished in a not so blistering time of 24:20. However only one other person over the age of 45 was ahead of me. The weather was about as cool as it gets for July in South Carolina, 72 F at the start. I had the chance to run once again with my son. He beat me again , but by a much smaller margin this time. I told him to watch out, old people can sneak up on you. He finished third in his age group.
It was a great 4th, and one I'm sure I wont forget.

Until next time,
