+TeamK-9 Posted May 16, 2006 Share Posted May 16, 2006 I've just recently gained an interest in distance running. I'm not running too far yet, but I'm hoping to work up to a half marathon in the next 6-18 months and a full marathon within the next 5 years. GPS has been incredibly helpful in training for cycling and hiking, and I believe it can help me with my new interest. The problem of course being that with running, I may not be able to have my big clunky GPS on a belt clip, and that of course presents a few problems. I've been looking at Garmin's different offerings in the Athletic GPS field, and I'm really interested in getting one. Unfortunately, this would be something I'd be paying for out of pocket, and since I've already got a perfectly workable GPS, I'd like to avoid spending too much money. I'm currently looking at the Foretrex 101 and 201, and the Forerunner 101 and 201. Anyone have any experience with any of these devices? Is it worth the money, or am I better off saving my money and just getting a pedometer and a nice stopwatch. Any information or first-hand use stories you can give would be greatly appreciated...
