Contributing to the census:
My current watch is an old Timex Ironman that I have to carry in my hand because the strap broke and I am too lazy/disorganized to do anything about it until I actually lose the darn thing. At which point I will probably just get a new battery put in the other old Ironman with a broken strap that I found under the seat in my car the other day...
Running routes: I've been doing most of my workouts on a 2k loop in a nearby park. (I don't normally use the metric system, but it just so happens that the loop is almost exactly 2k). It's convenient and pleasant and the park road is in good shape and doesn't have much traffic, so it works well for me. I'm also lucky enough to have some good trails to run nearby. Other than that it's mostly down the bike path and around town or up the bike path and along the river. Have plans to explore further afield when I get the chance.
When I was in college, we had a repertoire of regular routes that we did, mostly either six, eight, or ten miles (anything longer was generally a combo of the above). Occasionally people would try to come up with new ones, but mostly it was the old reliables season after season. After four years, we had probably done each of them a hundred times.
So, you can imagine how astounded we were when one of the guys managed to get lost doing "Pig Farm Eight" during the spring of our senior year. Brilliant dude - a physics/philosophy double major - but somewhat lacking in the navigation department.
