IMG_1886Whether you are a Runner, Cyclist, Paddle-Boarder, Golfer or even Fisherman, Hunter or Pilot you most likely have a favorite piece of equipment or a good luck charm. We totally get it!! Many times it is that gadget that helps keep you on the right track to achieve your goals.

In the case of Sonya, a mother, die-hard runner and her running group's fashion guru, her can't live without item is a Forerunner 205. But not just any Forerunner 205, I might add. Sonya, who is known to her training partners and friends as outgoing and fun-loving shows her personality with her style!

Here is what Sonya had to say about her one of a kind Forerunner 205 and her first marathon in Miami, FL:

I love my Garmin 205!! It is my most treasured piece of equipmIMG_1220ent for my runs!! When or if it ever fails to work I may have a complete "come-apart"! I love running  more than I have words to describe, but I have become the fashionista runner among my running group and just when they thought I could not make my outfits anymore spectacular - I did!

My "upgraded" (blinged out) device really captures everyone's attention, especially on a beautiful sunny day!!

ThIMG_1885is blinged out Garmin helped me reach my goal of under 4 1/2 hours in my inaugural marathon attempt this past weekend!! It looked awesome with my 1st-marathon-outfit! Here are some pics! Thanks again for such a great product for us runners!

P.S. Now my daughter and her friends want their car GPS Garmins "blinged" - Oh the madness!!!
