I'm in Gizwitchie Heaven!!!

Saturday, January 02, 2010

Yes!!! The day has arrived and I am beyond giddy! My Garmin Forerunner 305 arrived on my doorstep January 2, 2010 at 1:32 pm! I am official! Official what you may ask. I am an official Garmin Forerunner 305 owner! I just wish it came in pink. LOL



Yesterday I received another gizwitchie and this one IS pink. I have been using a Nano 3rd generation iPod to use with my Nike+ system and it was just another annoyance attached to my arm and this one I can stick anywhere. So, I now own the older generation iPod Shuffle in PINK! You ask me why I wanted that one because you can't read whats playing because there is no screen. Yes, I know and thank you for asking. I don't need no stinkin screen and I don't need no stinkin bells or whistles on my iPod. All I want is well...a shuffle cuz thats what I do with my Ipod anyway. I shuffle my music.



So, I am now playing with my new toys, reading manuals, registering warranties and doing everything just shy of bundling up and taking the Garmin for a spin. Well, its freaking cold outside and well...ITS FREAKING COLD OUTSIDE. For now, I will just hold my Garmin with a huge grin on my face.

    Your too funny.
    Enjoy. I'll know who to ask when I get one...
    I just learned about downloading Napster stuff that came on the family's new Dell Desktop (A little harder to run with).

    That Garmin is kinda pink if you squint.

    Careful, it is cold enough out there running to freeze your gizwitchies off!!

    New gadgets are so much fun. I want my own little ipod like your new one so I can have my own this year when I go for my runs outside. We'll see if DH will let that happen.

    Tell me more about this Garmin and what it does. I've resolved to get serious about my running this 2010 and would like to track when I run outside - which I prefer to the hamster on a treadmill thing! Lol! Not that I have to keep up with you, Spark Sis, you are far to fabulous for that, but it sounds more efficient than driving the course with the car first and guesstimating the distance!

    It is FREAKING cold out, so you might as well play with your gizwitchies.

    Good thought with the shuffle. I hadn't thought about it that way, but I may have to look for one of those on Ebay.

    I'm not into the Garmin's, but I may have to be to 'keep up with the Jones.'

    It's not freaking cold outside. You are a official Garmin 305 owner, so your definition of "freakin cold" has shifted at least 20 degrees, you just don't realize it yet. Bebe and I just went for a 40 minute walk. Would we do that if it was freakin cold out?

    Congrats on the new toys. I'm with you on the screen thing, but I bought the cheapo sansa mp3 player which was about a tenth of the price of anything with the phrase "ipod" in the name. And it shuffles just as good as a shuffle.
