Blessings Given

If you want to know more about the character of Rafael Giraldo [Mr. Giraldo], read his book "Blessings Given."

I began writing about his journey across America in June 2009, after gathering as much information about him as I could from his Tour of Discovery Website. Over the many weeks of triking across the U.S.A., we developed a friendship. I am fortunate to have been able to ride with him the last 2 days of his journey and witness first-hand the love and emotions displayed as he completed his 3,800 mile, 86-day tour. I am blessed to have conversed with him over the 100+ miles we rode.

"Blessings Given" tells us who Rafael is and how he views life. I feel rewarded and refreshed having read the book. It is easily a couple of hours read. I think you will enjoy Mr. Giraldo’s story and gain a deeper appreciating of what motivates this young man.

The Tanita BC-1000 platform features no display, as readings are automatically transmitted to remote displays such as the Garmin FR60 or Forerunner 310XT fitness watch, a personal computer, or Tanita’s tabletop remote display for easy viewing in various locations. This dynamic feature-the first of its kind-will allow for personal identification and data recording and is perfect for anyone who wants to track their health and fitness levels, making the BC-1000 the ultimate choice for monitoring your health.

You may want to consider the Tanita BC-1000 Body Composition Monitor in combination with a Garmin a Garmin Fitness Watch or Garmin Forerunner.

Here is the deal. The scale has no display. It sends its readings to the device on your wrist. You read it there. When you are close to your computer [that has a USB ANT™ stick], the data is wirelessly transmitted to the computer or skip the watch and go directly to the USB ANT™ Stick [$359.99 vs. $279.99 ]. This will not currently get data into Garmin Connect. You need the fitness watch or Forerunner for that. See the GF thread for discussion.

From there, the data is captured with Garmin Connect and shown on your health page.

All pretty cool stuff…
