You’re Breaking Up With Me?

Sad, but true… what was once a simple crack is now a huge chip… my GF is breaking up on me!

I was really very cautious wearing my GF405 lately because of the appearance of cracks on its rubber strap, and today the crack became a huge chunk missing from the strap!  It’s a good thing that it hasn’t yet reached complete breaking point… when that time comes, I don’t know, maybe I’ll tie it to my waist or something.  If only a wrist strap replacement is available here in the Philippines, or someone gives me an idea how to ship this Garmin Forerunner 405 Wrist Strap Kit here.  Ideas anyone?

Thank You! Acknowledgments 2010

Happy Holidays everyone!  Time sure does fly, and before we knew it, Christmas is over, and we’re counting down the days before the New Year is upon us!  But before the year completely passes there are some credits I would like to mention, from the best events of the year, to special thanks from my sponsors and supporters.

Thank You!

The Bests of 2010

To continue the tradition started last year of mentioning the bests of the year, I’m again doing the same this year, but I’ve joined far too few races this year so my scope is a bit different than the previous.  For this year here are my categories: Best Road Race (Sub-Marathon), Best Trail Run, Best Marathon, Best Marathon Route, Best Road Ultramarathon, Best Trail Ultramarathon, and Best Finisher’s Medal (Marathon).  I won’t be naming a Best Singlet or Finisher’s Shirt this year as the higher registration fees tend to make it unfair for cheaper fun runs to stand a chance.  Anyway, I know everyone has their pick, but I’ll be putting on the suspense and not disclose my list until the next post. 🙂

Best Finisher’s Medal 2009: QCIM (and I have a feeling there’s a new one this year)
