I RAN and Technology is Cool


After 13 days of not running (due to illness) I was finally well enough to run. I walked for 1/4 mile at 3 mph. then ran at 5 mph. for 1/4 mile. I did that twice to complete a mile. I finished in 16 minutes and felt good! This week is going to be an easy transition back into running. A lot of intervals will be used!

After my run, my husband and I went grocery shopping and then my mother-in-law and father-in-law came over for family night. I forgot to take a picture of the awesome meal my mother-in-law made for us, because we were busy Skyping with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law, who recently moved to Florida. My mother-in-law made shrimp and pork egg rolls, Chinese style noodles with vegetables and brought fortune cookies! We added Asian style steak to the mix and it all turned out great!

Last night's family night was very similar to how it was before my sister-in-law and brother-in-law left. We ate with them and we laughed with them. We caught up with each other and even picked names for Christmas! It was a fun time. We Skyped for a little over 2 hours! It was like they were here with us. Technology is very cool in that way!

I am going to have to look in to Google Hangouts. We tried Skype, which is nice, but we want to be able to have a three-way video chat at some point.

Anybody have experience with Google Hangouts? 

Any other suggestions for free video conferencing?
