Dear PBR,

Great blog! I am looking to purchase a new running watch for my wife and noticed that you use a Garmin GPS watch. Would you recommend this watch to other runners? Is it too bulky or complicated to use? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks Patrick! I love my Garmin but it is bulky. It is very easy to use. I have the Garmin 305 but I think some of the newer models are smaller so I would recommend checking those out. Your wife will love the gift – it is a great training tool!
