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.

Fitness Friday 5/24/13

Hallelujah it's Friday. It's been 'one of those' weeks for me. Lil Man at first wouldn't nap which left me feeling very frustrated with myself (if you're curious click here). And then my ease of going to the gym has been SERIOUSLY interrupted by major screaming and protesting from Lil Man. I do believe yesterday was our worst day ever for the gym (And The Screaming Gets Louder)

But as far as workouts go, this week has been another productive week. I'm still doing the plank challenge. So far I've been able to hold a plank for 3.5 minutes. Today the challenge is 4, but I haven't attempted the challenge yet :)

I got in some nice speed work on Tuesday and some nice hills on Wednesday (Recap).

Today was an early morning trail run. It was windy and rainy at times. I posted the run on my local running group's facebook page. Surprisingly, including myself, 7 of us showed up a little after daybreak. I got in 4 miles and some really nice hills. I do believe I'm enjoying trail running once a week.

Tomorrow's plan is 14 miles. However, the weather is turning much colder and very windy. (think upper 30's lower 40's and 15-20mph winds). This will be my longest run post marathon.

But that's my Fitness Friday roundup. How is your week shaping up?


  1. Thanks for the great run this morning! I am excited to do it again too. Trail running is so good for you!
    It sounds like you recently ran a marathon, are you training for another race now?

    Oh, and I hope the little dude cooperates with you again soon...but don't count on it ;)

    1. So great to meet you today. I just checked out your blog. So you are a big time trail runner. Awesome! And you have a great page!

      I finished my first marathon this April. I'm registered for the Harrisburg Full in Nov with the Double creek Half in June, Bird in hand and Harrisburg halves in Sept.

    1. Well.... I pushed it off until Monday. :) But it turned out to be a great run. It was just a couple of miles late. :)
