Notes to Self
  • I finally bought NEW $2.50 Maxell EarBuds at Walmart, what took me so long?
  • I'm also borrowing John's Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Watch; it displays time, distance, pace, and a running timer.  You can also wear the Heart Rate Monitor chest strap; I probably will when it gets hot outside.
  • I missed the pretty sunrise: need to leave earlier and hydrate more
  • I forgot to reset my pedometer before starting.  Good thing I had the running watch!

    1. Is there such a thing as a swimming watch timer? It's hard to time myself with the clock on the wall and goggles on my face.

    2. Their must be a watch proof version, but I imagine that would be hard to see as well...
