The one real bummer about my race on Sunday is that I completely fried my watch. Now, I had been using just a dinky waterproof digital watch that I wore mostly to keep track of the clock time – no splits, no GPS, just what is my approximate finishing time. And that was cool for the first few years of doing this, but now that I’m doing more events, I’m starting to think I need to invest in a better watch.
He comes the trouble. Do I go all-out and drop some significant cash to get a fancy triathlon watch? Do I start with a low-end runner’s watch and wait and see? maybe a mid-range runner’s watch that will last me longer, but then be almost as pricey as a tri watch? Obviously, I’m not sure. In the meantime, I’ll be doing a lot of reading on DC Rainmaker’s blog and trying to figure out which option is best.
