So I got a box in the mail...

...and I opened it up to find this goodness:







I am so excited that Garmin is my new sponsor and is so thoughtful to send me a large amount of the new Forerunner! Yeah right. I wish!

You know those great new Garmin ads you see in all of the running and triathlon mags?


Well, an amazing and VERY talented friend of mine put those ads together. Tiffany is so talented - and an great friend. We go WAYYY back - like middle school when we all had awful hair and braces. Middle school - what a weird time. Anyway - I order watches in bulk through her for all of my tech nerd tri friends. And unfortunately - none of the goodness in that box is for me :( I'm keeping it real with my trusty red Garmin until it passes way. Check out Tiff's site - she does some amazing things.


Also - talking about AMAZING people and a huge inspiration - check out the short video below. A training buddy of mine fought prostate cancer last year and won. He's going some amazing things right now - including freaking IMFL! Cancer is so scary and can effect anyone so take a minute and cheer him on!!




Random picture of the day - this REALLY freaks me out. I kind of want to cry just looking at this.


Good luck to everyone who is racing this weekend!!

I would be so sad if I had to give all the Garmin stuff away.

Congratulations to your friend for fighting cancer and hope he is enjoying his training for IMFL.

Girl you had me going for a second. As soon as I got my 405, wouldn't you know it a couple months later they came out with the waterproof one. Bastards.

Good luck to your freind Brett. He had a sweet ass bike too.

If I got a Garmin it would be the 310. Seeing a whole box of them that have to go somewhere else is just wrong.

I would love to get a box like that! And I own one already too.

That bear is creapy and funny.

I LOVE THE GARMIN ADS and can't believe your friend is responsible for them. Wow. Impressive.

Hope you had a great weekend!!!!

I have just started training seriously and am realizing all of these fancy gadgets that I must have... Garmin being one of them! If I received a box of goodness like yours I would definitely have to find some way to profit off of it :)
Loved the video!! Good luck to your friend. You are a great person for spreading the good word for him! Love your blog. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us!

I'm completely flattered you mentioned lil ol ME in your blog! Thank you so very much. Your following is quite impressive, and I'm very proud to be your friend! You're the best, and you know I'm always here for you when you need anything. I think my new poster will be in honor of you. "Run. Wine. Run."
