    I love the idea. I usually walk more than 5K every day. Usually spend around 3-4 hours a day on my feet, so I've gotten used to it. Unfortunately, I'm not a U.S. resident and I don't have an Apple Watch, so I'm feeling a little jealous. Happy Thanksgiving!

    TA-DAAAAA!

    I wish there was a way to recall achievements on the Watch. I didn't think to take a screenshot first, but recalling them like you would on the phone would be nice.

    I calculate that to be 8:04 per mile - an impressive pace!

    I ran my usual 3.57 mile track at 8:34 per mile, which is a little faster than my target pace of 9:00.

    Finished 3.62 miles today. But my badge hasn't shown up yet. Anyone else have this problem?

    Mine didn't show up at first. As soon as I got home I opened the Activity app on the phone and saw the announcement in the app but no award.

    Then I realized I had to end the Workout (Outdoor Walk, 3.51mi). Did so and then I got an acknowledgement on the Watch about 3min later, the achievement on the phone 1min after that, and then on the Watch 1min after that. So it took about 5min+ to get it all squared away.

    It was a pretty nice day, so I got a change to put a charge on a solar watch. It needs lots of sun. Indoor LED light was taking forever.

    My pace was a little less impressive. I chalk it up to having to stop for the traffic lights. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

    Nope ... Sat on my ***, and watched football. I did do a little muscle toning by doing multiple 12oz Reps with each arm ...

    I want to hit 24 minutes by the end of December. Its just funny because when I was FAT BAMF the only running I did was to the fridge and that would take me 40 minutes

    LOL! If you can run sub 8 minute miles that would be awesome. You're either the next level of conditioning ahead of me, or perhaps a decade or two younger.

    I log every run so I know that for 2016 I'm averaging 8:44 per mile for 1176 miles, 19 seconds/mile ahead of my 2015 pace. I'll be perfectly happy to just maintain an average 9 minute mile pace for 2017.

    60 here. So another goal for me is to still be running when you're 60.
