Do I really need a $230 gadget to tell me exactly how far I ran and how fast I went? Does it really make that much difference if you measure your route with your car or on a bike or even on a map and you end up being off by a little bit? My Forerunner has made a HUGE difference for me, a relatively inexperienced runner. I have never been able to work up to my goals before and it is because I have no sense of pace at all. I can honestly say that running an 11 minute mile felt substantially the same to me as moving at 9.30 until I had a Forerunner. I need the constant feedback to let me know when I'm really dogging. That probably sounds really strange to you because you know what you are doing but for me this thing has been a Godsend. Also, tracking mileage in the car is really inaccurate. More importantly, just knowing the total distance and total time doesn't help with pace and strategy.I love my 201. I got it instead of the 301 because I already have a HR monitor but if I didn't I might have gone for the 301. MPFstill hasn't worn both at once to figure out how all that works.
