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.

First 8 Mile Post Pregnancy

Last week was my first 7 mile run, and I wasn't 100% sure what this week's long run would be especially since I haven't slept much this entire week. I had wanted to do 8, but just wasn't sure if that was going to happen this week. 

The temp was only 71, but it was VERY VERY humid. Within a mile, I was soaked with sweat already.Also, the route that I was running, I had to pass my car 4 times which I don't like to do. It makes it too easy to just stop. 

But I found the will power today to keep moving. The main goal was just to do the distance. But, I also had hoped that I could keep the pace to the mid to lower 11:00's. For the most part, I ran a fairly even pace give or take 30 seconds. Mile splits were: Mile 1 ~ 10:40, Mile 2 ~ 11:17, Mile 3 ~ 11:13, Mile 4 ~ 11:32, Mile 5 ~ 11:09, Mile 6 ~ 11:30, Mile 7 ~ 10:56, Mile 8 ~ 11:14. Overall, my average pace was 11:11. I was pleased today with the distance and the pace. 

I do believe I may have patted myself on the back a little once I got home. First of all for getting up early after very little sleep to run, and then for completing the run. There just may be an ice cream cone in my future.
