I'll get the Garmin part done first. After a few years of consistent frustration with the Garmin 405 (mostly when it get damp and the beeping and bezel issues), I found a slightly used Garmin 610 on eBay. Like to tell you how great it was, blah blah blah, but the truth is, it was at my office door this morning when I got it, so I cant honestly say anything. But I will soon.....
I've been fighting this damn bronchitis (now that I finally wussed out and went to the dr's) for the past 3 weeks. I'm on antibiotics but after 3 days and I thought I was getting better it is not going to go down without a fight. Coughing and rhaspy voice back in full force today. Hated taking yesterday off, being a Sunday and my long day, but figured I would live to fight another day. My plan is to hit the trails today, probably an easy 4 or 5 and take each day as it comes. If I dont feel much better tomorrow, I'll see if I can get another dose of meds before I leave for Myrtle Beach on Friday.
Ok - races: The registration for Stone Cat 50 miler isnt up yet, but I'm still preparing the best I can try to plan so that I can be ready come November. So in the past few days I have signed up for the 25k at Pineland Farms on Memorial Day weekend in late May and Bear Brook Marathon, which is a 26.7 trail marathon in mid-July. I guess since Bear Brook is greater than 26.2, technically it would be my first Ultra, but whatever I just want to do the work and prepare so that I have the best shot I can to beat 11 hours at Stone Cat, and these are my first two steps in doing so.
Enough for now. Until next time ~ Be Well, Sank
