I am SUPER excited for tomorrow. Wanna know why?
Because I ordered both my dad and me the Garmin Forerunner 305!
Don’t know what it is? Well let’s just say it’s magical.
No really. It tracks just about EVERYTHING on your run. How far, how long, elevations, pace, heart rate, and probably about 234923904 other things. You can use it on a bike too, or I imagine in a lot of other scenarios. I think it does just about everything but run for you.
Now, for those who know my dad……this just SCREAMS his name. Seriously, since Jamie told me about it, Amazon has been screaming “PAT PAT PAT PAT!” My dad currently tracks all his runs on Excel, and being the accountant that he is, he is a beast with Excel and has made it his bitch. If we run a new route outside, then he has to drive around and clock it so we know exactly how far we went. At the gym, they have a track but we aren’t sure exactly how long it is. NOW HE WILL KNOW!! Since my older brother didn’t buy Dad a birthday present, I convinced him to go halfsies with me on it now, for no particular holiday!
So, the best part is…..my dad doesn’t even know! Wanna know the second best part? I just signed up for Amazon Prime for FREE, cause I had a .edu email address, so I got OVERNIGHT SHIPPING for $8.
This means, it will get delivered to me tomorrow at work, and I can take them to my parents tomorrow night so my dad and I can use them for our run!! I will have to see if they need batteries or some kind of charge, so I can charge them up and we can use them
Who knew I would ever be so excited about something related to exercise??? Cause NOW, I will HAVE to keep running since I spent $150 on a fancy watch for myself haha.
I will let you all know how I like it :)
p.s. Don't tell my dad!!
