Anyone that knows me, knows a passion of mine through out my life has been running. I guess it was the stress relief I got from it, but back in school, I just fell in love with it. I may not be the fastest runner on the block, but that is not important to me. I just like the fresh air, the sights and sounds of nature, and the "runner's high."
How I ever ran before without this little device, I don't know! A couple years ago I purchased this Garmin Forerunner
and fell in love.
Garmin has several Forerunner
models, all of which do different things. Some come with a heart rate monitor and some are waterproof.
These Garmin GPS watches are not only for running though, they can benefit the avid cyclist, the cross-country skier, and the wind-surfer.
A foot pod is available to transfer data if you are training indoors or on a bike. Your complete workout can be downloaded to your computer and analyzed.
This little guy keeps up with your pace, your location, your mileage, exercise time...so much! It is fun to wear and and know just how far you have gone on a new trail or maybe just how fast you can actually run that dreaded hill.
I ran into a great family the other day and we talked about what a great gift these make to that exercise nut in the family...I promised I would post some information on this. So, I did! :)
