Michele and I ran nine miles today, and now my Garmin Forerunner which keeps track of how far I’ve run has logged over 100 miles since I got it in late January. It’s a portable GPS receiver you wear on your wrist that’s designed for running or biking.

We’ve been slowly increasing our long runs on Saturday by about half a mile each week, but I think we’re going to hold steady at nine miles for a while. Both of us were completely beat after this run, which was the longest either of us had ever run.

Next weekend, we’re running in the Winter Park Road Race 10k, which is about 6.2 miles. I’m not sure why all the races are measured in kilometers when we don’t measure anything else in this country using the metric system.
