Elite U.S. distance runners use Garmin as ‘secret weapon’ in game of cat and mouse
One of the best things about Garmin’s fitness line is that a first-time user can take advantage of the same technology as the world’s top athletes. Just as a bike commuter can use the same Edge 705 that graces the handlebars of Team Garmin’s elite professionals, a weekend jogger enjoys the same benefits from a Forerunner 405 used by world-class runners. Recent notes from U.S. distance champs Deena Kastor and Ryan Hall to our fitness team shared a rare glance into just one of the ways that these two elite distance runners use their Forerunners in training.
“You make an incredible product,” Deena wrote to us, “I’ll give you a little inside scoop on how I’ve made it work for me: I get a head start on Ryan for hard training runs and he tries to catch me. I usually look at my Garmin to see what pace I’m running or how much ground I have to cover in order to hold him off. I tease him right before I start by saying ‘Catch me if you can.’ Then, it is only my Garmin giving me information to fend him off. It is my secret weapon.”
