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.

I Took A Step, I Felt The Pull, And Then The Pain

Yesterday, I went outside in the cold weather for my first outside run post-marathon. It went fairly uneventful. It felt great to be out there running again. I had decent splits. My knee felt ok. Overall it was a good run. 


This is me today... 


After my run yesterday, my calf felt pretty sore and tight. I stretched as best as I could. I walked on it all day with the family. Then last night, I rolled, and rolled, and rolled some more. 

It was tender to walk on it in the middle of the night. Lil Man got into our bed again (sigh) at 2:30am. So I took some motrin (in case of inflammation). This morning I stretched. It felt ok when walking. So I did my 1 mile #RunningStreak. It felt fine during the run. I was getting breakfast when Lil Man spilled his entire cup of milk on the carpet. I turned to go down to the basement, as I was running down the steps, by about the 3rd step or so.. I felt it... a pull, a nice sharp pain, and my calf muscle immediately 'knotted' up. 

Several hours later, I'm still unable to walk without pain. I've iced several times. I'm using compression. And I'm resting (as much as possible with a 2 year old). 

I made it 13 days on the #RunningStreak. At this point, I'm not sure how bad the injury is.... but I'm afraid that I am injured. I was just about to commit to a 5 mile run at the end of December. And I was looking at a possible Half this Spring. 

Right now I'm not visiting the DR unless the pain is still this bad in a few days. I imagine at this point he would tell me to do what I'm doing - R.I.C.E. Anyone ever dealt with calf injuries? Any advice? 


I'm in a contest and currently #4. I'd love to move up to at least 3rd place. If you could click on the Health Choice Vote for me button that will give me a vote. ~Thanks
