Peg’s Posts: Confessions of the addicted.


Kc_half_marathon_2008 Fr405greencropI’ll admit it — I am addicted to running and all the sweaty socks, training time, injuries and ice packs my passion entails. It all started about 4 years ago, shortly after Garmin launched its first GPS-enabled fitness device, the Forerunner 101. Wasn’t much point in me writing ads for something I’d never used. So I ran with it. And I spent time with the engineers who developed it — runners themselves who were intent on perfecting a training device like none other. We ran together, raced together, compared data. And the days I didn’t have a running partner, I had Forerunner and its virtual partner to keep me on pace. The addiction grew stronger. Having a device that instantly showed my distance, pace and tons more data was a rookie runner’s dream.

Is there a rookie runner, weekend warrior or a slightly addicted athlete on your Christmas list? Give your runner a high this holiday with a Forerunner 405. It’s the only all-in-one fitness watch that calculates position, pace, heart rate and more and wirelessly sends data to your PC. If you’re the one with the healthy habit, give a hint and maybe your stocking will be stuffed with more than candy canes. Find more ideas for giving a Garmin at our online gift guide.
