My birthday was last week, and my wife got me a Garmin Forerunner 410. I’ve been using a Forerunner 305 for a few years now, and it’s on its last leg – the buttons aren’t working so well anymore, the battery life is dwindling, and it seems to take longer and longer to find the satellites. So, I’m excited about the new Garmin, although I fully realize that it won’t actually change how fast I can run.
My wife also gave me an introductory class at the local velodrome! We are lucky enough to live super close to one of three (I think) Olympic velodromes in the US. So, once they open up for the spring, I’ll be sprinting around the 44 degree embankments of the track trying not to shit myself. Should be a good time!
