I have decided to run not one, but TWO - yes t-w-o - half marathons in 2012. Five weeks apart, no less. March: Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in DC, April: OKC Memorial half marathon. Surely you're thinking, oh, you must run...Nope. Sure don't. Actually until, oh I don't know, two months ago (?) I'm not sure I could run a mile without sweating and heaving and generally looking / acting like a hot m-e-double s. Well, I am comfortably up to three miles - I know, 10.1 to go, but I'm kind of excited. And NO THANKS to my childhood PE classes for instilling an enormous amount of hatred toward running in me. I mean seriously, torture. Why does it matter if you can run a mile in less than 10 minutes when you're 11 years old? I couldn't then and I can't now (ugh being the fat kid was so debilitating!) So, Coach Taylor, if you're reading this, thanks for ruining my running career (until now, ha!). I still remember her saying, "if you don't do this I am going to make your life a living H-E-double toothpicks!" Hello, traumatizing.
like I look cool while I do everything else, does anyone have any suggestions on which Garmin is the best? From what I understand there is a 10something, 20something, 30something, you get the gist...with varying prices. Instead of racing (hehe, no pun intended) out to buy the most expensive one as per usual I thought I would be a budgetista and ask the blogosphere. Any suggestions?
