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.

Well It Happened - I Went There

Well it happened. I said that I wasn't going to 'go there', that I wasn't going to allow myself to get caught up in comparing, but it happened

Last year, I placed 3rd place overall female for the first time in my life. And I had high hopes this year of PRing at the same race. (My First Time Placing In An Overall Category)

Tweet: Well, it happened.. I went there... http://ctt.ec/jehs5+  #WillRun4IceCream via @MrsGlass #running #comparision And not just that race, but my other races this year. I had planned that this year would be 'the' year. You know the one that I'm talking about - where things just lined up. Because last year other than this one race that I'm referring too definitely wasn't the year that I had hoped for.

So when I saw the posting today that the race was back, well, it was like a little jab.
Ugh, I'm still injured. I'm back out there running (some), but I'm no where near where I was before I got injured. This week especially I'm feeling a little more tenderness in my hamstring than I have been, and I'm pretty sure that I need to back off.

For a split second, I considered not running the race again this year. I mean, I'm not going to be any where near my PR time last year. Then I heard myself say "What are you - five? Get over yourself because you are being childish!"

I really really struggle with comparison, and I almost let that stop me from running a race that I would really like to do simply because I'm not going to be where I was last year. Well that's ridiculous.

Is it disappointing that I'm injured? Well sure. But I need to put my big girl running panties on and get over it.



Do you struggle with comparison too?

  1. I compare myself (to myself) all the time. It's so hard not to!

  2. Of course I do. To myself, that is...I know what I can do and when I have a bad race, I get so mad at myself....
