Cori --- New Toys

Last week my husband bought me a gadget. Unlike Nickie's last post, I am not a gadget girl at all. I like to be as unencumbered as possible. I barely like my iPod touching me. When Johnny approached me about getting a garmin watch, I was like, "No thanks, if I need to know how fast I'm going I'll just ask one of my friends. They all have watches." This really bugged him for some reason. I think he felt I was depriving myself, but I really and truly did not care.

Until I met my Garmin.

I am now in....not love......but serious, serious like.

I might love it if I could finish the instruction manual. The local running store offers a class on how to operate this watch, if that tells you anything.

My favorite part? I love to know my heart rate. I feel like the Garmin is my friend, watching out for me, telling me my heart rate, worrying about me.....it just makes me all warm and fuzzy thinking about it.

I think I will be naming it.

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention my other new gadget. (Didn't I just claim to hate gadgets? Yes. This was another husband purchase.)
I am a walking billboard for RoadID's Supernova.

You clip it onto your clothes when you run at night, and it flashes so brightly that it can cause seizures in passers-by. Not really, but it is obnoxiously bright. Apparently my true love is concerned that I am going to get hit by a car, and since I refused to wear his fluorescent trooper vest, he found a cute little alternative.

I bet my protective helmet is coming in the mail any day now.
