A Step Above
This weekend I ran another 5 mile race in Central Park. That brings me up to something like 12 races in 2004.
And after much thought, and considering how much I've been running lately, I decided to bite the bullet and make a major investment.
I bought one of those fancy stopwatches - you know, it checks your heartrate and times your laps, and even has a GPS satellite connection that will enable the police to locate you in the event you get lost while doing a run through the woods of Manhattan.
And for the price I paid for it, it damn well better give me back massages and clean my apartment for me.
Not that I would know. I'm still too intimidated by the humongous box and thick instruction booklet. It's still sitting on my coffee table.
