Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?



The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

August 27, 2008 Morning Run

I couldn't believe how cool it was outside this morning. I wasn’t prepared for it to be so chilly. I didn’t run yesterday, which usually makes it more difficult for me to run the following day. But, I didn’t give myself a chance to talk myself out of it. I strapped on my running belt, put on my reflective vest and hat, kissed my husband, and walked out the door to the fresh air waiting for me. I decided to run the 2.8 mile loop today – lots of hills – But I chose to run the course where most of the loop was downhill verses uphill. I had to run/walk as usual. I’m disappointed that I’m still not able to run non-stop on my morning runs. But I have to tell myself, that I am out there. I am trying. And eventually, surely, I will get stronger.

August 23, 2008 - 5K

A couple of years ago, I ran faithfully. In fact, six days out of the week, I would get up and run religiously with my best friend. We would run, talk, laugh and vent. How I miss those times!

In July 2007, I got married and moved away from friends and family. Running alone was different for me than running with a running buddy. So different in fact, that I basically stopped running. But this July I started trying to 'get back on track' with my running, and I signed up for a 5K. This was the first 5K that I had run in five years. I was both excited and nervous.

But, I'm pleased to say that I ran the race and I came in just under 30 minutes. I didn't break any records, but I am pleased with myself. Getting out there and running alone is difficult for me.
