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.
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:
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?
