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.

I ran 6 miles today on my lunch break. According to my training schedule, I was supposed to run 2 miles today and 6 miles this weekend. I set the alarm to get up this morning and run 2 miles, but the weather did not cooperate. So I decided to take my work-out bag with me to work so I could run after work because I had a meeting and wouldn’t be able to run at lunch. But, my meeting was cancelled, and I took advantage of my lunch break to get a run in.

As I started running, I didn’t know how far I would go. The weather this weekend is supposed to be ‘wintery’, and I knew that today would be the best day weather-wise to get a long run in. It was difficult! When I reached the half way point at just 3 miles, I was afraid that I wouldn’t make it back to the office. I knew that I didn’t have time to ‘walk’ it back because I was on my lunch break.

Also, I had told my boss that if I wasn’t back in a certain time to come look for me. For her to have to come pick me up while I was walking back was an embarrassment that I didn’t want to live. So, as I turned the half way point I pushed myself forward.

I was thankful for the opposing traffic that forced me to wait at the traffic light. I was happy to catch my breath. All in all, I ran six miles in an hour and six minutes.
