Last Sunday I ran the Chicago Marathon. It was my first time ever in Chicago, my 3rd marathon outside of California, and my 19th Marathon overall.

They call Chicago the Windy City, but personally I never found it especially windy. (But then again, I was there in the mild month of October.) And Marathon day was no exception. The day was clear and cool with a few clouds. I made it, along with the rest of the mob, early enough to particiapte on my corral's eight AM start. The thing is, around eight o'clock my corral wasn't anywhere near the start line. It would be a little more than an extra half hour before I finally crossed the line with my herd.

The day before at the Marathon Expo I attended a Runner's World forum, and one of the running coaches recommended running the first ten miles as one would a training run, so you could spare yourself for the latter part. I decided to follow that advice. It was also ideal since my PT Jessica Greaux, (Of Innersport in Berkeley,) had been coaching my running, and I paid a lot of attentionto my gait and cadence as I tried to pedal my feet and move the ground underneath me, rather than slapping my feet on top of it.

My beloved Garmin Forerunner 305 is on its last legs - the alerts don't beep anymore, it won't sync with my computer, and new development today - pressing any of the buttons besides "start/stop" causes it to shut off.

SOOOO... I guess I'm in the market to replace it (as well as to find one for my fiance, who has gotten interested in my 305 lately). Any suggestions?

Features I love about the 305: the ability to have split screens, and to switch between screens. On one I show lap pace, lap time, lap distance, and on another I have total time, total distance, and current pace (which is actually fairly unhelpful most of the time). Thos are the two screens I use the most - the third shows me total time, total distance, lap pace, and randomly calories (which I assume is innacurate, making that fairly pointless as well.)
I also like the history log, with the ability to see overall stats, as well as lap-by-lap breakdowns without syncing it to my computer.
The heart rate chest band alway worked well for me, though I often forget to put it on.

I've never loved the bulkiness of the watch itself, but it never bothered me so much once I got on the road.

Accuracy is important.

Any ideas?

X-posted in my own Journal

Earlier this month I ran the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. Actually I did the Pixie Dust Challenge, which was the 10K on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. I was going to write a regular race report, as I usually do with big races, but I'm prompted to write this instead.

I am a "regular" race runner. I run on average three marathons a year, having run my first in 2009, and I've run so many half marathons, 10Ks, and 5Ks that I've literally lost count. I save all of my race bibs, and I've run out of medal hangers, yet again.

I knew about Disney races but wasn't really prompted to try one out until my friend Maire convinced me to try one out last year, when I ran the Tinkerbell Half Marathon in 2015.

Please read the rest, It is important!Collapse )
