This week’s favorites are made up of two pieces of arm candy and one thing found at Goodwill.
My mom recently purchased a Fitbit Alta and decided she didn’t like it (mainly remembering to wear it and charge it). So, now it’s mine! While I loved my ChargeHR, it really clashes when I dress professionally at work. The Alta is a lot slimmer and you can change the bands. Now, my Fitbit feels more like a piece of jewelry than a fitness tracker.
I have been drooling over this watch for well over a year. I have a Forerunner 10 that’s almost 3 years old, and the battery is on it’s last leg. Last month I took it on a 6 mile run and the battery was almost dead. I came thisclose to buying a refurbished 220 on Amazon, but something told me to wait. That night a lady in one of the RunDisney Facebook groups I’m in was selling hers for well below the refurbished price, and I couldn’t pass it up. So I’m now the proud owner of a gently used 220 and I’m in love. This thing has a beast battery, and has all the bells and whistles. It even syncs to my phone wirelessly!
I picked up this book at Goodwill a few weeks ago, and I’m about halfway through it. This book is basically the Wild of running. The author got divorced, and in part of her healing process decided to run 7 marathons on the 7 continents. I’m hoping it’s the kick in the pants I need to be inspired about running one in April!
