My good friend and fellow runner Jeff recently gave me an awesome present: the Nike+ iPod system. He uses it for training and thought it would be a great tool for me as I attempt my first marathon. I have used it twice and like it, but I think it is trying to ensure that I would buy another or recommend to a friend by boosting my ego. It's telling me I am way faster than I think I am. Today for example, it was telling me I was doing around 7'20" miles during my 5 mile run. Very flattering, thanks, iPod, but I'm pretty sure my training mile times are more like 8'20". Hmmm, guess I need to do a little internet sleuthing to get to the bottom of this. Don't get me wrong, I would love to believe I run that fast. But, I don't.
In other news, I got a notice in the mail from a COLLECTIONS AGENCY today! wtf. It was from Macy's saying I owed $116 on my Macy's charge. So pissed. I have not even gotten a bill from them in months and then they go behind my back and let me experience the joy of being sent to collections. I thought we were friends.
