GPS training

I got a Garmin Forerunner 201 for my birthday but it has been too hot for a delicate flower like me to use. I used it today and it's so awesome! I just did a basic 3.5 run - which took me a little longer than I wanted. I'm trying to get back into running after a spotty training period. It made me feel good to know that Road Runner and I have been running the distance we thought we were running. The Forerunner kept track of my distance, time, pace - everything. I came home and uploaded my stats in an effort to track my "progress." I also found out there's so much more I can do with it! I can set goal/distance/time goals and have it alert me when I finish a lap or am going too fast (not a problem) or too slow. I can also set a virtual partner who I can race. So far, I'm not too excited about chasing a little figure on the screen on my wrist. After all, that's what Road Runner is for.

How's the garmin forerunner working out? It has a lot of cool features. I looked at it before getting my polar heartrate monitor a couple of months ago. I liked the idea of the virtual partner. Does it look like road runner?
