The New Look of Garmin Connect

Garmin users, have you visited Garmin Connect lately?  If you haven’t, now is the best time to see its new “modern” look:

Troika

Since my GF405 and I are no longer in good standing, it’s time for me to explore other options.  And I didn’t just found one—I found three at my disposal!

Breaking up with my GF

Tragic.  So this is how it all ends.  My GF and I are through. :’-( It had been a wonderful three years and four months with you.  How I am going to recover from this is yet known, but I will surely miss our times spent together. 😦

The Best Forerunner Yet: Forerunner® 910XT

I just drooled with excitement when I saw the latest Garmin Forerunner, the Forerunner® 910XT: Garmin Forerunner® 910XT (Courtesy Garmin.com) To sum it up, for me it’s perfect!  I may not be into multisports now, but as an ultrarunner it has some of my most sought after features: the long battery life (up to 20…

GF Found “Dead”

Lucky 9 at Cebu Marathon

It was the ninth day of the New Year, and it was my ninth marathon.  I’ve heard wonders about the previous Cebu Marathon, so this year I decided to find out for my own and do some “assessment run,” but I got much more than I had expected.

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…
