My second gift was exactly what I was hoping for. Before Christmas this year, my tried and true Garmin went caput on me. Garmin replaced it (several times) with refurbished models, but I didn't have very much luck with any of them. I've been drooling over a couple of the newer models (with GPS instead of my lame foot pod) and was hoping I'd get one for my birthday. Hubby didn't disappoint!
It's the 310XT model and a dream come true. This baby is so cool. I've named it Marvin the Garmin and I can't wait to learn all the features he has to offer. I love being able to track my routes automatically (I'm not a very big fan of running the same routes over and over). The heart rate monitor is actually comfortable, so I've been wearing it unlike the last watch. I'm going to have so much fun training for my marathon with this on my wrist. Watch out Nike! I'm gonna rock your marathon with a Garmin (no Nike+ for me)!
