Couch to 5k: What App Do You Use?

As you know I signed up for my first 5k last week. I am trying to get ready to train for this and I want to do that whole “Couch to 5k” thing that people do. So, my question for you is: which app (I have an android phone remember) is the right app? Or the “official app”? Because when I go into the Google Play store there are so many to choose from.

I Got a New Phone

I got a new phone yesterday! I decided on the Samsung Galaxy S5, in Shimmery White. I contemplated waiting for the new Droid Moto X2 / X+1, but it wasn’t due out until September 25th-ish and I couldn’t wait that long. So – I took the plunge and the Galaxy S5 is what I opted for.

It all started one day in June when I was perusing Facebook . . . it seemed like Julep was everywhere! So I was like, what the hell, I’ll “like” the company, no big deal! Well — next thing you know, I’m looking through their website not just thinking about buying some stuff, but considering a Maven subscription, oy! I mean, it looked like a pretty sweet deal for a beauty subscription box . . .

It’s Almost Time for Me to Get a New Phone! Do You Have Any Advice?

Welp, my old HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE with Verizon Wireless has been on-the-fritz for a while and I’ve just about had it! My 2yr contract up (as of 08/02/2014!!), so that means I can get a new phone any time now — yipee! Here are some of my thoughts and research for my upcoming purchase . . .
