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.

Decision Made

Well, the official results showed at this point that I do not have pneumonia. But I'm sick, really sick. At times, just trying to walk across the room, I can't make it and have to stop and cough. 

Although it isn't something that I want to do and I'm very disappointed, but I think the best decision for me is to defer to next year for the Half next weekend. 

I've put a lot of training in for this race, but we have family plans two days after the race. And honestly, I think it would be best for my health not to run. I need to rest and fully recover. It would not be smart for me to run. And I need to be smart. 

Disappointed, not what I planned, but it is what it is. I can't let it get me down. It's time to rest, get well, regroup and refocus cause I'm registered for my 3rd marathon. Yep! A couple of weeks ago, I made the commitment and registered for a fall marathon. Guess I'm marathon training once I can walk without wheezing! :)

  1. Tough choice, but one race isn't worth a longer setback. :(

    1. Exactly. I'm really bummed, but I know this was the best decision.

  2. Sorry you are sick. I'm sure you made the right decision. I've been dealing with illness myself and I'm really glad I don't have any big races coming up soon. I do have the Peachtree Road Race 10k next month. www.pamrunsmarathons.com

    1. I hope you get well soon! And good luck in the 10K next month!

  3. Sorry to read this, I understand the sentiments completely. No matter what, our health always comes first, and there will be more races. I know it stinks, but you aren't alone in having to defer races ... I think we all go through it now and then. Feel better! I've got some raging head cold at the moment myself (or allergies gone wild?) ... blech.

    1. Hope your head cold gets better! Yep, not my first time to miss a race - and probably not my last :) But I was really hoping to knock this one out of the park ha. Maybe next time ;)
