Or would if I actually had any cell coverage out here. I’m pretty sure I’m going through withdrawal, since the only time I have internet access is before a race at 5am or in the evening, by which point I’m pretty much too tired to think. In fact, it’s 8:15 pm as I write this and honestly I’d rather be asleep.
So, the topic that April, Patty, and I chose today is “Fitness Trackers/Running Watches.” I don’t currently have a fitness tracker, so I’ve got nothin’ for that. In fact, I’d love to hear from you all about yours.
When it comes to running watches, I’m a Garmin girl. I love my Garmin 220 like it’s a member of the family. It catches the satellite super fast (seriously, it took it like 30 seconds this morning even though I’m 1000s of miles from home), it’s accurate, it’s easy to use, and the battery life is awesome. I ran my first half marathon and it barely put a dent in the battery. I’m not even charging it for North Dakota. Sure, it’s not the fanciest of the Garmins, but I’m a simple girl – I just want to know how far and how fast, with a little bit of actual speed. The 220 does that and much more!
I promise a race report soon, but the short story is I came, I ran, I finished my 40th half marathon in Montana. And then I hiked in the North Dakota Badlands.
