Peg’s Posts: Forerunner frenzy and envy


Garmin group 1 One of the many perks of working for a company that’s developing the leading training devices in the fitness world is being the very first to try them out. At recent group rides or races, I’ve witnessed other athletes look longingly, perhaps enviously, at the latest and greatest hardware gracing our wrists and bike stems. Products like the Forerunner 310XT need no introductions in triathlete circles. They spot it, say “that’s the one I want” and mentally pencil it in at the top of their gotta have gear list. Several Garmin associates had the swim-proof, multisport 310XT on hand for a recent triathlon/duathlon. The race was part of the Kansas City Corporate Challenge, a metro-wide series of events that let corporate folks compete against other companies. After taking top honors in the bike race, 5k meet and track meet, Garmin pulled out a win in the triathlon/duathlon meet as well. Having the right training tools makes all the difference.

JC Even for first-timers like my boss, who posted a super-fast time in a very competitive age group. Now, let me clarify first-timer: Jon’s a seasoned runner and cyclist, but this was his first chance to string the two together for a duathlon. All the guys he beat who’ve been doing this for years probably didn’t want to hear that. Could be the new sleek ‘do and Team Garmin kit that makes him look like he’s just part of the peloton. Could be years of experience or it could be the tech training tools. Don’t miss your chance to get your hands on the latest Garmin gear. We’ll be at the inaugural Seattle Rock’n’Roll Marathon next weekend, so come see us and find out how the Forerunner 310XT and our other new devices can take your training to the next level.
