It’s Prime day and FREE SLURPEE day!

Happy 7/11 day or as I like to call it, FREE SLURPEE DAY!  Yes, today is 7/11 and if you go to any 7/11 store today, you get a small slurpee for FREE.

Today is also Amazon Prime Day and if you’ve been thinking about the new Garmin Fenix 3 today may be the day to order one.  It’s 36% off if you have a prime account.  The deals actually started last night and there are some pretty good ones for runners, that’s why I probably won’t get anything done today.

The deals come every single hour!

I did get up this morning and walk five miles in Kapok Park, as always, it was beautiful.

Kapok Park

I’m not a very fast walker.  It takes me around 14 minutes to walk a mile, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.  When I walk a lot and I can get it down to around 12 and a half minutes but there is no way in hell I could ever walk as fast as Tom Bosworth.  He walked a 5:31:08 mile at the London Diamond League on July 6th.  And in case you’re wondering, yes, he actually broke the world record!

I watched the video yesterday and when I was walking this morning I thought about speeding up to see how fast I could go but I didn’t, however, there was one point when I looked down at my stats on runkeeper and saw this:

no way

What! WHaaaaaaaaaaaat?  Current pace what?  In my dreams!

That is so not accurate.  I ain’t gonna lie though, it sort of made me feel like Usain Bolt for a hot minute.  So there’s that.

Time’s a wasting, I’ve got some shopping to do.

Are you an Amazon Prime member?  Will you be shopping today?  Will you go out and get a slurpee?
