What is your end game treat?

I'm looking at treating myself to something when (if?) I graduate.

Just wondering what everyone else has done, if anything.

I'd like something running related, both for memory and to keep me going - I think I might treat myself to a Garmin.

What have you guys done?

When I got to my first weight target I got myself an iPad and when I graduated I got myself new trainers and a Garmin Forerunner 610 with HRM & footpod. I don't know if I'll buy myself anything when I run my half marathon in a few weeks time.

I treated myself to a Garmin (Forerunner10) to record my last run of week 9 - and have appreciated it ever since. It's nice to be able to record the runs and see the progression (or vice versa at times!).

I went for a long run.

Garmin 10 in pink was my treat and I love it use it always and has helped me to run faster !

Hello :)

I'm on week 6 and have promised myself new and 'proper' running gear when I graduate, including new running tights, tops, jacket and an upgrade in running shoes.

At the moment, I don't run in proper gear...i.e I'm running in top shop leggings, skinny tshirts and hoodies.

They do the job I suppose...but to be fully 'kitted out' is an incentive to me ;D

I piroutted at the top of the hill in the park (even though there were dog walkers around! ) & I ordered my c25k graduate t shirt (in biggest ladies size, stupidly as it was too small to wear as it rode up during running, but today I ran wearing it for the first time with no issues, yay!) :-)

I might treat myself to some new trainers soon and some more kit.. Primark has some fitness stuff in!

I got myself a graduate t shirt, money is too tight to get a shiny Garmin so I will have to rely on the highly annoying Nike+ app a while longer. Maybe Xmas will bring something... (I wonder if Mrs Narmour is reading this... AHEM!!!)

I will probably have a very nice fillet steak :-)

I did my graduation run at Parkrun as a celebration. My wife even came to cheer me on :)

I had a massive Chinese takeaway when I graduated. Then I bought a graduate tshirt, then proper shoes.

C25K t shirt - which looks terrible on me alas (should have gone for long sleeved I think as I rarely run in short sleeves) and I almost never wear now. And 101 running songs for my phone, plus some Audiofuel stuff (as this was pre the C25K+ podcast trio)

I got a Garmin for myself as a graduation present, but it came one day before my graduation run which means, I used it to do my graduation run! Then followed..all my proper running gear, winter running gear..hats, bum bags etc etc etc..list never stops:-)

Bottle of red and a Chinese I think.... I also love any excuse to get new gear and I'd so love a Garmin.....
