“The Miracle isn’t that I Finished, The Miracle is that I had the Courage to Start”

Happy Friday to all my fellow Runner Friends!!!
Today was the day I needed to run my speed test for my Running Coach to set paces for my training. I have to brag on myself if you all don't mind. I had to do a 1 mile warm-up, 2 mile speed test and 1 mile cool down. Weather was 32 degree with little wind, also had to watch for ice. I was chilly but it had to be done today...
Did my 1 mile warm up and I was ready to go. I just started running, I did map out 2 miles so I would not look at the Garmin. I felt great, but I did have to talk to myself a little. When I saw the end I picked up the pace. Yea finished, now to look at the Garmin. WOW 18:43.... I did not know I could do that. I think that's a PR... I finished with my 1 mile cool down with a smile on my face.
I don't know about you, but I always look at my Garmin and try to maintain the pace I want to run my Half in, doesn't matter the distance. Guess I should quit looking at the darn thing and just run. I have a lot to learn about pacing...
Have a Fabulous Weekend Runners. I am off to a GREAT start!
Do you run with a Garmin or other training device?
