This week’s last run was 🔥HOT🔥 tonight but I didn’t want to wait until it cooled down just in case there was a problem. But I got it done!

Having a complete nightmare. Can’t get my Garmin to sync. Bluetooth won’t connect with it. I did just ovER 1.2 miles this evening but can’t get RunBet to sync with Garmin to update.
