Garmin FAIL

Yesterday Mathis and I met up with GYRO, and we decided to run 4 miles.  I was feeling really good at the beginning.  In fact we hit mile one at 9:45!!  But shortly after the first mile my Garmin died and my motivation died right along with it.

I know it's pathetic that my motivation rests on a piece of technology, and Mathis really pushed me to keep the pace strong, but it was tough.  :(  I'm facing a lot of mental challenges in my running lately, and I'm not sure where it's coming from.  I'll be logging 13 miles between now and Saturday so hopefully I can practice some mental toughness along the way!! :)

Miles: 4
Time: ????? :(

Miles this Week: 7
Miles this Month: 31


  1. Isn't it funny how you can stare at your wrist your whole run?? I though Jorge was going to die during my half and was freaking out!!! Luckily, he stayed strong! At be happy it wasn't a race day!

  2. Ok Nicki, seriously, you have been such a huge inspiration to me! I love to follow in your footsteps!! You are doing a fantastic job, so when the going gets tough, slow down a little bit and remember you have already accomplished great strides with your running journey!! I am so proud of you Nicki!!
