recap here). When I crossed the finish line I was so disappointed that my hardwork hadn't translated to a great run because of my strained ab muscle. But wait! According to my cheap-o Walmart watch, I actually did PR by 21 seconds!!
Post-race Taylor and I trekked to the 'bou for my celebratory post race latte, and then he started driving towards the running store.
J: What are you doing!?!?!?
T: Well I figured you'd want to get your stupid watch right now.
Unfortunately the only watch they had in stock was the ugly black man watch. Ya'll know how much I luuuuurve green, but I was unwilling to wait another 2 weeks for a watch to be shipped to me, so ugly black man watch it is! And from the minute he went on my left wrist it was love. I love him so much that it looks like I'm wearing a pale flesh colored version of him at all times. Heck ya tan lines.
Happy birthday Garmin the Martian (yes that was/is his name that I stopped referring to him as roughly 363 days ago)!! You have lead me to many PRs over the last year (7 for 8....not bad) and have been the shining beacon (other than my legs obvs) during my first attempt at marathon training. GtM I think I love you. (And in case you were wondering, I plan to hyphenate our last names when we get hitched Jeri Lee _______-the-Martian....has a great ring to it, no?)
*And yes, I through my Garmin a super girly Barbie themed birthday party. Don't judge.
