New Gadget

For Valentine's day I bought myself a Garmin watch. Using GPS it calculates the distance you've run, which allows it to also determine pace, approximate calories expended, ect. I only have mine set up with 2 training screens right now. The first has average pace, total time, and total distance. The second is called virtual training partner, and it shows you a cartoon of you vs. a virtual partner who is moving ahead at your goal pace. I also have it set to automatically stop the timer if I stop moving, for instance, at a stoplight. One of the features I think will come in handy, is a compass to guide you back to your start point, in case you get lost. Not that I do that all the time when I run somewhere new...
