    People poop. People pee. Women bleed. Men get erections. Women have boobs.... and so do men (sometimes bigger). People just need to get the F' over all this crap.

    Uh huh. G.C. is about as socially relevant as Myspace. It's a training app. Makes perfect sense for a female athlete to track their menstrual cycle. Kudos to Garmin for expanding options for both sexes.
