Prove yourself


After a 4-miler here in Kansas City back in March, a friend let me know that both of our names were missing from the results list. I checked the site, where they noted some issues with the chip timing, but still posted unofficial results. Checked the posted results from my age group and hey — my time could’ve put me at the top of a field of 89. While my friend routinely sweeps her age group and often comes out in the top three overall, this was a first for me and definitely worth pursuing a correction.

Mb_map_pageProving my results was as simple as e-mailing the race official with a link to my data, as shown in MotionBased. The beauty of having a Garmin GPS-enabled fitness device is that it not only records your stats, but puts you and your activity on the map. Now anyone can see when and where you started and finished, along with your overall time, pace and other data. In my case, the race officials responded immediately and got my name back in the results. There were no prizes or qualifications at stake — just a teeny bit of personal pride for me and my coach. My coach: Forerunner.
