Guess what? I wore shorts on my run last night! In January! Crazy, right?
I was dying to try out RunKeeper again and figured I'd risk it with 8 miles. I also wore my Garmin just in case. It was really annoying dealing with both, but in the end it worked out. My Garmin didn't pick up signal right away, but my phone did. I had a meeting later in the evening, so I had to get moving and decided not to wait for my Garmin. It turns out it took just about an entire mile for my Garmin to get signal. Sheesh. Of course I didn't realize this until I took out my phone at one point, thinking I was at mile 6, and Run Keeper said 7! I don't know why I hadn't compared earlier, but I was very glad to realize I only had a mile left.
Luckily, that didn't stop me from trying to conquer some hills in Beacon Hill.
Anyway, it was a tough run for me mentally, but I got out there and did it. At least that's something!
