"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." Theodore Roosevelt 1910

Marathon training & Garmin GPS

Above is our Training Log for the Marathon (click on it to enlarge). I have to give credit for my great time in the Disney Marathon to Bernadette and the great training program she put together. We ran together every Sunday morning from October to the week before Disney.
The truly amazing device she used was a Garmin Forerunner 205. While this unit has many diverse and interesting features, I loved the real time speed it displays. If our goal was to run 10:20 miles, it told us immediately if we were on that pace or not. It made a great training tool and I am now looking at getting the 305 which incorporates a heart rate monitor also.
