    Wow, I’m impressed … and this was only the start! Congrats on your accomplishments! I just started following your blog (found it on the HLB website). Can you tell me about the HR monitor you wear on your wrist? I start a running training program in a couple of weeks and am hoping to find a simple HR monitor/distance/calorie counter. Thanks!

      Thanks! If you want one that tracks distance I suggest a Garmin Forerunner. That’s what I want to get soon. Right now I have a Polar Heart rate monitor. It tracks time, calories only.

  2. Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete

    Yay!! I’m so proud of you! You totally rocked your first leg. I’m so jealous that you did this relay! I heard it was the mecca of all relays (compared to the other two that I did this year).

    I can’t wait to read more. šŸ˜‰
