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.

The Verdict is In


So, I went to the foot dr yesterday. The verdict is that I have tendonitis. What does this mean? Well it means it can at times take longer to heal than bone. But it also means that I have to be smart, and listen to my body.  Pushing through pain is not an option.

My immediate course of action is a very bad four-letter word called, REST. I will pause a moment so all of you runners out there can gasp and catch your breath. Yes, peeps, I was told to rest. Now for someone who likes to stay in motion, it certainly wasn't what I wanted to hear. But I knew it was coming. I wasn't surprised.

So what do I do now? Well I rest of course. But, after a period of rest, I can attempt the elliptical or possibly cycling. However, cycling still may cause too much strain. I'm not a fan of the elliptical, but I'm even less of a fan of sitting. So I get the opportunity to cross train to keep up my cardio fitness, strength train to build more muscle mass, and strengthen my core which has always been a weak spot for me. You have to focus on the positives.

Of course I'm not happy that I'm missing the marathon this weekend. I'm still fighting back the disappointment. No one wants to train for a marathon and not run. So I'm not a marathon runner, yet. It remains unknown if I ever will be.

But I have trained for one. I have put in numerous hours. I've completed long runs that I never thought I'd possibly do. I may not have the accomplishment of completing a marathon, but I do have the accomplishment of training for one. Right now, I have to be happy with that....
