Technology is dead…

16 01 2010

Ok so maybe that’s just a tad dramatic.

But yesterday morning as I’m getting ready to head out the door into the cold dark morning for my 3 mile run… I try to turn on my Garmin to set on the porch – DEAD.   Dead I say!   I keep it on the charger at all times if I’m not using it so at this point I have no idea what is wrong with it and I gather up my ipod, gloves and hanky and realize my iPod has very little charge in it.  Never fear, I have a back up iPod…   that one was DEAD.   GEEZ, I just gotta get out and run so I take iPod #1 and head out.   All is well except that I’m worried about my million dollar gadget that I’ve had for 3 months being broken and just about mile 2 the iPod gives up.   I had to laugh at that point because I was just missing the whole point of being out there!  It wasn’t about how fast or how far I was running, it wasn’t about Lady Gaga singing Bad Romance in my ear,  it was about being ALIVE!!   I was outdoors running on a glorious morning.  I enjoyed the last mile of my run and was kind of sad it was over,  if I didn’t have this thing called ‘work’ to go to I would have been out there for another hour.

After my glorious run, I made a batch of juice.

It could have fooled me with the looks of it (sorry for the blur)…it sure looks like coffee to me!  But alas it is a combo of:

  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley
  • 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 head romaine

it didn’t really have a strong flavor, I think the celery and romaine may have stood out the most but it was very light and refreshing!

Well my friends, I’m off to help a very special boy (my nephew/godson) celebrate his birthday!!

Have a Wonderful dry Saturday!!

See, I love your attitude over all this. the last time all my technology died I freaked out. (I was on a low gi eating streak and had no wick) AND I was running on a treadmill and NOT outside in glorious weather but in either case I cannot wait till I end a run feeling like you did today. (well, I may actually have felt that way) but I can’t wait till a 3 miler seems easy.

Have fun at your party!
your juice does look like coffee but sounds refreshing! MMM

I can totally relate. That has happened to me before (ipod and other devices) and then yes I too realized it is about the run not all this other crap!
