When I was packing for my London (Ontario) weekend, I noticed that I had packed a LOT of cables.
While that may not be extreme for some people, I think it's a lot for 2 days away from my house. Just imagine all the cables I didn't take!
So I was thinking about electronics, and how they all used to be AA battery-operated when I was a kid. Which was a perfect situation, because whenever one set of batteries ran out, I could always steal another set from somewhere else. AAA were always trickier, and they remain unusual in my mind.
As an adult, I still have (too many?) lots of electronics. Even my leisure reading book is electronic! And I was thinking about this during my run. Since I was testing out my new Garmin's GPS abilities, I was thinking how far technology has come. I mean - I can mark down my friend's house, get dropped off 5 miles away and my WATCH will tell me how to get back!!
While I would still trade TV for real-life action, I am glad I didn't get lost today. :)
The best thing about London is that it has hills! Here's one I ran earlier today, this was the first 5k of my run (/walk) today:
