Using Garmin 305 (+HR) for running?

Is it possible to use it for running? I desperately need a HR monitor and would love to basically go all out, but I don't want one that will simultaneously combust and explode into a million pieces if I decide to take it off my bike and use my own two feet.

Thanks.

[ETA: Yes, I do know that there are much cheaper reliable HR monitors on the market, but I'm a sucker for all the bells and whistles.]

I use the Forerunner 305 for both running and biking. I just wear it on my wrist for both. I'm not sure how you'd transport the Edge for running...

I use my edge 305 for running as well. Works fine for that, you just have to figure out how you are going to hold the unit.

Thanks! I already carry a Camelbak for running so I'd stash it in there.
