Peg’s Posts: With Forerunner 110 on-hand, I’m Boston-bound!


Ryan Hall - PF Changs-web Other Boston news I’ve been following: the favored-to-win status of Ryan Hall, American record holder and Garmin-sponsored athlete who's been training with the Forerunner 110. Check out this video of Hall’s recent training run on the course, where he’s using the 110 to track all his stats. Love watching that guy run — effortless forward motion. Seeing this got me scheming. Suppose I work my way up to the elite start (those of us shorter in stature have ways), tether myself to Hall and just coast for 26.2 miles? It appears he has enough power to spare.

Next stop in my mental prep/site scouring: the New Balance “We run this town” site. Particularly enjoyed the “speak Boston” tips. Another site, forwarded by a coworker, offered “run Boston” tips paired with street-level photos of the course. Somehow I’d pictured streets of gold, and the slightly dingy photos on that site just weren’t measuring up to the images I’d concocted. But since everything about this trip is new to me, I’m looking forward to every inch of it. And with my new training partner on hand, Forerunner 110, I’ll be tracking every mile and every minute on race day. Later, while giving my legs a rest, I’ll be able to upload my data to Garmin Connect so I can review every lap, view it on a map, replay the race and share it with friends and family who’ll be following from the sidelines back home. Here's how my qualifying marathon last fall looked in Garmin Connect. Here's hoping I can relax, take in the sights and savor every step.
