“Running has always been a relief and a sanctuary—something that makes me feel good, both physically and mentally. For me it’s not so much about the health benefits. Those are great, but I believe that the best thing about running is the joy it brings to life.” –Kara Goucher
I have always followed Kara Goucher’s’s amazing feats as she is one of the most accomplished American female distance runner for the past 15 years. The two-time Olympian is mostly described as tough because of her awesome achievements, her ability to come back after a series of injuries during her peak years. Lately, Goucher is continuing her extreme gift of marathon running into a balance of training, rest, healthy eating and more training… inspiring others to do the same.
Her major accomplishments:
Marathon PR: 2:24:52 (Boston, 2011)
Best trials qualifier: 2:30:24 (Los Angeles, 2016)
Most recent marathon: 4th, 2:30:24, 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials
Residence: Boulder, Colorado
Age : 38
Previous Olympic trials results: third, 2012 marathon; second, 2008 10,000 meters; first, 2008 5,000 meters
Celebrating the pursuit of the Rio Olympics 2016, Kara in collaboration with other Soleus Elites, Alysia Montano, and Nick Symmonds, has debuted a special edition collection designed Soleus watches.
While the Soleus GPS One is a minimalist watch, “it has everything you need and nothing you dont”, as its catchphrase suggests. It’s a simple watch with not much frills but delivers what it does best, accurately track your speed and distance. And what better way to maximize it’s potential than to collaborate with elite sponsored American athletes on a signature series collection that is designed by elite runners for world-class and newbie runners.
The Soleus Signature Kara Goucher GPS One has a stunning red, white and blue interface with Kara’s signature at the back that represents the American flag. The Soleus GPS One has all the technology many runners need..a reliable GPS provides you via a simple user-interface with accurate pace and distance information. Moreover, this watch is water resistant, and comes with a rechargeable battery.
Though it doesn’t upload data, you still can keep an old-fashioned work-out diary which Kara does. Aside from pace, distance and speed, it also measures calories burned, stores lap data and has a 100-hour chronograph capabilities.
After several years of constant use with various Soleus GPS watch models, the Sara Goucher GPS One Signature series packs the usual important features of a GPS watch; an accurate recording of average pace and run distance, long battery life and now a great color design which is plenty suitable for all-day wear. Great running watch at a very low price of P4,950.00 available at all L-Time Studio Stores and TIMEGEAR Boutiques!
