A New Toy 

REI had a sale that ended this past weekend, and I bought a Timex Speed + Distance GPS setup for 50% off, minus an additional birthday gift certificate from my Aunt and Uncle. I really got it for running, so I could more accurately know the distance I'm going (I pretty much guess it right now), and can keep a more consistent pace. I bought it Sunday, and took it out with me biking tonight. It was pretty redundant on the bike since I have a bike computer, but I wanted to test it out and see how it worked. Hopefully once my knee has healed to the point where I feel like I can do impact training again, I can see how useful it will really be. The arm band piece will take some getting used to, but it's not that heavy, even if it is a little bulky.

What can I say... a geek loves his toys.
