I just have to give a shout out to my awesome dad. I haven't written a lot about him, surprisingly, since my love of running obviously came from him. But I digress... my dad called today and told me that he read my blog and facebook status and offered to buy me a new Garmin for my birthday. So, so, so thoughtful!! He is already sponsoring my marathon in May. So, thanks, Dad, for being such a huge support of my running!! It means so much that you follow my blog and are so supportive! I love you!! ***
I am in such a good mood now. He is down riding as I am writing this. He took the Garmin with him. SIGH. I doubt if he would come home if he lost it again. ;-)
*The metal detector belonged to my inlaws and has been sitting in our garage for years. Kenny has been meaning to go beachcombing forever. I am so glad that we never donated it or sold it on Craig's List in order to make room in the garage. It really came in handy!!
**We don't use the band that came with the Garmin. We bought a band that could attach to a bicycle. It has a velcro strap that I actually like better than the original band. Unfortunately, it looks like Kenny didn't double check that it was snapped onto the band correctly. It is best to snap it on before putting it on your wrist and apparently, he did it the other way.
***Not just because you have offered to buy me things. It is so important to me to have you interested and excited about my running. You are also a wonderful grandfather etc. :-)
