Forgot to mention…

Posted by D under running & toys

Oh, I just realize, I never followed up on this post about a potential new toy… to absolutely no one’s surprise (I guess) I went ahead and bought the Forerunner 305 about a week ago. And I must say I really like it. Much faster to acquire satellites than the Forerunner 201 I had before (and I guess that will soon be my sister’s…). Much better user interface. And it includes the heart rate monitor, so no more running with two different “watch-like” accessories… I look goofy enough without that.

I already ran five times with it, a total of about 20 miles. And I’m now trying to figure out how I can post some of the runs that I made; you can create really nice track maps from the GPS data – but the problem is that this would give away where we live. And as much as I am not overly protective of our personal information here in this blog (using actual names, etc), that’s a little more openness than I am ready for.

Would it make sense to add this in a password protected area of the blog? Or to ask the question differently: would this be interesting for people to want to look at? Please comment or send email…

    Es kommt ganz darauf an welche Gruppe von Lesern Du erreichen willst. Es würde allerdings auf ein Zweiteilung des Blogs herauslaufen. Einmal für ‘die Welt’, und zum anderen für Familie und Freunde.
    Eventuell wäre für so etwas auch die gute alte Mail praktischer.
    Ãœberlege es Dir gut.

    Not two separate blogs. Just an area in the blog where you’d need a password.

    Best not to reveal too much personal info. There are some wacko’s out there. (I know what you’re thinking). Like I said, don’t let us know. :o), but passwords seem cool. I do spinning, and can do 35km an hour (don’t know the translation into miles, but it will be less impressive). I can relate to the endorphine rush. Good on you for running from your problems. You must be an engineer, non?
