Am i a runner without a garmin?
“Even if you fall flat on your face, at least you are moving forward.”
Today, i discovered the garmin. Seems to be all the rage with the running community. I currently do not own one but would like to do some research and ask around. Am i a runner without it? Should i be concerned with time, pace, gps, what the tempurature is on mars? I kinda think i should be. Especially, the mars thing! Hey you never know where you might be on your next long run.
Here’s where you can read about the various garmins that are available for purchase: Garmin
Wow, i especially like that touch bezel feature on the forerunner 405 (newest model i think) Now, here’s my quandry. I run religiously with my ipod. So, now i would have my click wheel ipod plus a touch bezel. I might get confused and look for a playlist on the garmin and ask my ipod for my pace! I am far from tech savvy but i like to be in the loop. i like to know whats happening and whats hip and cool. Are garmins cool? Are garmins hip? Do you have to have a MBA from Harvard in order to figure out how to work it? These are the questions i ponder.
So, my question is….Am i a runner without a garmin? I’d like to think so, but again here’s my question….Will i feel more like a runner with a garmin straped to my wrist? Anybody?
