It’s Spring, Get Your Garmin On

Garmin Forerunner 10
The Garmin Forerunner 10 is a new running watch designed to track your miles, pace, and calories. We love the convenience that treadmills provide for monitoring mileage and calories (and there is nothing wrong with wanting to watch the miles as they pass). But treadmills can feel monotonous, and running is a great excuse to spend more time outside and explore.

We like this little device because it’s like having the treadmill’s monitoring system without the actual treadmill. The watch is waterproof, so it won’t break when you sweat. It comes with a rechargeable battery and is extremely runner-friendly with a few easy-to-use buttons.

Our favorite feature is that the watch monitors your entire run and will tell you when you break personal records for distance and speed: Motivation at the push of a button.

It is pricey, but there’s nothing like the $130 watch sitting on your counter to get your ass out on a jog. We know, we know. With everyone telling you that you don’t even need shoes to run these days, why pay for another gimmick? But if that gimmick helps you to track your progress while giving you a break from the screen, that’s reason enough for us.

You don’t even have to be an avid sports fan to excitedly anticipate the Olympics every two years, when many of us are glued to our screens to watch the best of the best athletes compete in the Summer Olympics or Winter Olympic Games. With the diversity of sports, the emotional backstories of some of the top athletes representing their countries, and true feats of physical prowess and grit demonstrated in each event, the Olympic Games are nearly as engaging and exciting for viewers around the world as they may be for the athletes striving to compete in them.
Both the Summer and Winter Olympics are an integral part of the fabric of our culture and are memorable events every time they roll around. Although each iteration of the Olympic Games only occurs once every four years, the Summer and Winter Olympics take place on a staggered cycle, which means we get to see one of the versions of the Olympics roughly every two years. However, there are quite a few differences between the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics, from the obvious, like the specific sports contested to the more minute, like the number of nations represented.
