This weekend I'll be running in my 28th marathon, the New Jersey Marathon. However, unlike my previous 27 marys, I will be running this one naked. Alright, well that's not entirely true. To spare my fellow runners and any unsuspecting volunteers and spectators, I will be clothed. It is my wrist that will be naked. No Garmin barking at me this time.
Back in 2007, I bought my Garmin Forerunner to assist me with my training runs while preparing for my first marathon. Since then, I've been married to the damn thing. Don't get me wrong, I'd be lost without my Garmin. Yet, I sometimes find it rather pathetic how much I rely on it for pacing...instead of listening to what my body is telling me.
So, to spice up my marathon, I'm running this baby on pure feel!
Sorry Garmin, it's not you...it's me.
Have you ever run a race "naked?" If so, I'd love to hear from you!
