If we don’t we’re gonna blow a 50-amp fuse

Toy #2: Garmin Forerunner 201

I may actually buy one of these sooner than later...especially if I decide to keep training for longer distances. Half marathon is Sunday, and this would a cool toy for it. Maybe next year.
The Forerunner 201 offers athletes an easy-to-read display, ergonomic wristband, and integrated GPS sensor that provides precise speed, distance, and pace data. It's a compact, lightweight, accurate training assistant with performance tracking, auto-lap, auto-pause and more. The Forerunner 201 is easy to use right out of the box and delivers the benefits of GPS technology at an affordable price.

Working out with the Forerunner 201 means you're never alone in your personal training, because the unit provides a Virtual Partner™. This unique feature allows you to set your training goal by configuring your Virtual Partner's pace and workout distance. You'll get a graphic perspective of your performance by viewing your pace in relation to your Virtual Partner's pace, so you can always see at a glance if you're keeping up or falling behind.

UPDATE: This toy has been ordered, along with a Camelbak Hydropak.
