So far...

I was playing around with my Garmin tonight and thought to look at the history on it for the first time.   I bought it right before I started formally training with the team so, in just over a month I was surprised to see exactly how many kilometers/hours I had logged!

For those of you who don't know what a Garmin is, it is a running watch that has a GPS in it and it will track your pace and distance, as well as timing how long your runs are.  It will even tell you how many calories you've burned, based on your weight, speed, distance etc....and that's only SOME of what it does - I still have alot to figure out!  Pretty cool little gadget!  I got mine for a steal on eBay!

Anyways - so far, I have run 84.06 km and that works out to 10 hours, 12 minutes and 33 seconds of running in just over a month! (and burnt 7307 calories apparently - I KNEW my clothes were fitting looser!) And I am still at the point where I am not running for over an hour a session yet!   By the time I am done the half marathon, some of my long training runs will be 2.5+ hours long EACH!
