Peg’s Posts: Greetings from Beantown
I’m also taking in stories from the Boston veterans I’ve met in the last two days. Someone staying at our B&B is running his 10th Boston and said he hopes to make 25 so he can be listed in the official program. Another guest at our B&B, Bruce from Ontario, is here for his second Boston. Bruce said he learned about Garmin fitness devices through his exposure to Garmin avionics as a noncommercial pilot. “The best thing that happened to my running was getting a Garmin Forerunner because it helped me slow down,” he said. “I’m able to manage my pace better.” He also mentioned that he uses Forerunner when marking courses. “We’re developing a new trail network in Ontario. Being able to dump our data to Garmin Connect and overlay on maps is huge.” Later, I met a lady headed to the expo to work a booth and when she saw Garmin on my jacket, she asked if I had “the new one.” Showed her the Forerunner 110 and answered her questions about her current model, the 405.
After spending a little more time at the expo on Sunday, it was back to our B&B for a little R&R. Plus the pre-race prep of bib number pinning, assembling attire and packing and repacking my bag drop items. My speedy roomie, who's going for a 3:30 and a PR, was glad to know she could get on-the-spot product support. She is a Forerunner 405CX customer and loves it, but had some questions about customizing the screen, so we got it set up and even set her Virtual Partner screen for her goal pace of 8 min miles.
