I guess if I’m gonna seriously do this thing, I should get some gear, huh? And by “this thing” I mean actually be a consistent year round runner instead of a October – May runner. Since I’m committed to being a year round runner now, I figured that it’s time to do a little research into some fun runner toys. First on my list is a Garmin. Specifically, a Garmin Forerunner 10. It is apparently the holy grail in GPS watches and gives you all kind of fun info such as splits, etc. I’ve been using RunKeeper on my phone forever, but it is super inconvenient and awkward to get my pace from my phone when I’m in the middle of running a race. I’d much rather be able to just store my phone and run.
With the limited research I’ve done, it appears that the Garmin is the watch for runners and so I’ve decided it’s the watch for me. I have a few weddings, birthdays, etc coming up that mean I probably won’t be able to buy it as soon as I’d like, but I will definitely have this on my wrist before my next half marathon in October.
Do you currently run with a watch? Which kind? And…do you love it?
