I have been running since the Staten Island half but I have been running without a watch. That’s right, I’ve been going out to run and I haven’t been using a watch. Crazy, right? If you run without a GPS watch, did the run even really happen? Are you sure?
I find that whenever I hate running the most, it’s usually when my watch is telling me something that is making me feel kind of shitty. So I’m going to tell you a little secret–if you don’t like what your watch is telling you, maybe you just need to stop taking it with you everywhere. Consider your mind blown.
This weekend’s long run was done completely watchless and misery-less. Coincidence? I think not.
