I just got done reading a post over at Complete Running Network about running a marathon wearing hardware. I don’t wear my iPod in a marathon because I like the whole racing zeitgeist with the roar of the crowd and all that but I did use it as a crutch in my last marathon when I was falling apart and needed a boost. I do wear my Garmin so I can upload the race results to Google Earth and look at it and think, wow – I ran all that way!
That is in stark contrast to this morning’s run which I took after swimming 2000 yards. Went out there wearing my HRM, my Garmin and my iPod. I really should have had an antennae sticking out of the top of my head to complete the outfit.
