Of course, my birthday was last month and my team gave me a gift card to Luke's Locker. Shopping for running gear - YAY!!!
The other weekend when our friends were in town for the Brad Paisley concert, we stopped at Luke's for a shoe fitting (that's definitely a post for another day when either The Boy or I buy new shoes - it was like watching the Shoe Whisperer at work).
While J was waiting to see the Shoe Whisperer, The Boy and I did a bit of shopping, too.
I'm now the proud owner of a Garmin Forerunner 210.
I've gone through the basic setup, but my technical booklet reading inept, learn-by-doing self needs to do some on the pavement testing still. I have a 17 mile run this weekend, which will be an excellent opportunity see what the watch can actually do.
Either way, it's thrilling to know that I can start tracking my pace during a race. I think it will help me get closer to my goal of setting a PR (personal record) in my next marathon.
That's on my 101 List, by the way. Just like getting this watch was.
