      It's funny because this is how I started running. I would map a route out with walkjogrun and then I'd go run it with a stop watch. Hit START when I started, and STOP when I finished. I had no concept of how fast or slow I was going, I was just going. But, this was also before I was really obsessed with time. ;)

      That's what I used to do. With a regular watch, and then I'd plug in the numbers here and it would just calculate my overall pace. Nothing wrong with that, I think! :)

      You've got this right. Don't shower them all the time, but once in a while, go all out. We gave our then 2-yo babee a zipline for her 2nd birthday. The kid has had nothing but hand-me-downs before or after, but oh that zipline, it has had much, much use and continues to be very busy!
