I have participated within the sports world from the very time I can think back to as a young child. I played Basketball at OSU for two years, and finally decided it was time to hang the jersey up and throw in the towel. For any person whom has dedicated a large portion of their life to a highly competitive physical activity, and came to the realization that it was time put it down, knows how devastating it feels. It was like I lost a part of me. So, I dabbled in various types of exercise, even joined a small basketball league. For years, nothing satisfied my inner self competition, constantly striving to go harder, faster, and smarter. I was never fully involved nor familiar with the aspect of solely just running. Long story short, I am now, absolutely in love with lacing up my running shoes and taking off. Sometimes not even knowing what type of workout I was going to engage in OR other times, I end up just lightly jogging with a smile on my face and two dogs running right along with me. The Garmin watch is currently assisting me significantly in my daily training, in preparation for my very first Triathlon! The applications on my Garmin are extremely beneficial along with very accurate in feedback on my workouts. The battery life is amazing! I love how I do not have the worry of having to one, change out a battery, two buying the appropriate battery replacement, and three losing any data should the battery life completely give out!
