So I got this from my family in November as a birthday present. I turned 40, and feel awesome about it. I am far from a techy or a gadget guy, and I thought I would be the last person to ever own a garmin, but I changed and I love this thing. The one thing I really like about it is I can just leave the house and just randomly run and it records my mileage. I have tons of planned out routes, but it’s really cool just to go out and just run in new areas without wondering how long I am going. It of course tracks your pace as well. Plus I really would like to start some trail running someday, and this would be ideal for that. Do I recommend this gadget? Absolutely!
