AAAHHHHHH! God got me!

Okay...just last week I blogged about how I felt so free running without my Garmin during my taper week before the Louisville Half Marathon.

So, get this! When we returned home on Sunday, I plugged in my charger and put my Garmin on the charger. I took two days off to recover and had a date today to run with my niece, Gracie. She is training to run her first 5K with me on Thanksgiving Day.

So, I come home after school to get changed. I go to put on my Garmin. I turn it on! I turn it on! I turn it on! IT WON'T TURN ON! IT WON'T CHARGE!


God got me for feeling free without it! He thought he'd just take it away!

So, on the lookout for a new one...any suggestions?


  1. Look in the classifieds of your local newspaper or internet site! My husband got my Garmin for a killer deal online! My ipod won't now I'm hawking on the internet for a good deal on one of those. Be patient - a steal of deal will come! :)

  2. I had a similar problem. For some reason, it would charge and I ended up charging it later (2 days) and it was fine and turned back on. So strange.

  3. Oh no! I think looking for a used one is a great idea. I use a Nike+, so I don't have any recommendations on a Garmin (although, the more I hear about them, the more I want one!). Good luck!!

  4. It's working now...I emailed Garmin and they gave me a quick way to reset it without losing all my data and it worked! YAY!
