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. .

I went running yesterday for the first time by the river. It was beautiful to run by the frozen snow-covered river. My boss is a runner, and she and I went running after work.

The wind was blowing (wind chills in the teens), snow on the ground, ice in the road, a few snow flurries here and there, but I did it anyway. I ran a little over 2 miles and didn’t walk one step. I felt like my lungs were going to explode, but I didn’t stop. It’s amazing how setting a goal, no matter how large or small, and finishing the goal gives such a great feeling of accomplishment.
