I've been using my old iPod on my longer runs lately and some of the songs I haven't heard in a good long while. This was one of them. I starting imagining what it's going to be like hitting the finish line of the full and I may or may not have gotten teary.

Have fun everybody, I am planning on it. Decided to start in front of the Balloon Ladies again.
You're crazy

Good luck to your brother. One of my training partners has a hip injury and is worried too about finishing. She got two 20 milers done though so I think she'll be okay as long as she can continue to improve on her injury. *fingers crossed*

I see accuweather finally got rid of the rain for marathon Sunday, but now the high is predicted to be 77.

I saw this too and I'm thrilled. Not holding my breath though as I'm sure it'll change 9 more times.

I finally managed to wipe out on my 7 mile run today. Until then, I was enjoying the COLD wind chill (near freezing when I started - cold for Florida) and the quite chilly temperatures. At least I was wearing a long-sleeved tech shirt from the Spacecoast Marathon, so my shoulder is only bruised but not really torn up.

The worst damage was to the face of my Garmin. Anybody know anything about repairing a cracked Garmin Forerunner 610 face? It's got a triangle shaped piece out of the top of the face now, but the functions still work. I'm wondering how vulnerable the face will be to further cracking, even if I don't fall again.

Hard to believe that 2 weeks from now, We'll be done running 26.2 miles at Disney! (Or whatever distance everyone is doing.)

Stormtroopers sounds cool.

Ouch! Glad to hear you're okay, but I would be mad if my Garmin was screwed up(610 as well). Have you checked with their support? They do carry a 1 year warranty, and while initial thoughts are that it might not be covered, one of my friends has only great things to say about them. As far as fixing yourself, it's a fairly sealed unit so I haven't torn one apart yet. Searched on the do it yourself repair sites and nothing turned up either.

DH bought me the white Nike + GPS watch for Christmas and I feel bad, but I hate it. I gave it a chance but have bony wrists so it fits awkwardly and annoys the hell out of me. To make things worse, he bought it on eBay so I can't return it. I wore it once and it works fine, but like I said, I have small, bony wrists so it just fits weird on me. Anyone interested in buying it? Comes with a shoe sensor. I'll even trade for a new(ish) Nike Fuelband.

I don't have that kind of watch but I do have a bony wrist. lol Do you wear it above your wrist bone that sticks out? I have to wear any watches above that. I have a big running watch (Garmin 205) but even though it's big and my wrist is small it doesn't bother me at all.

If I put it above my bone, it slides. When I adjusted the band to be more loose, the device banged against the bone while I ran. I feel so bad.

Oh ok, gotcha. Yeah that isn't good. My Garmin tightens enough above my bone that it doesn't budge. Do they sell different straps maybe?? Or if not, maybe just sell it on ebay yourself...I'm sure your dh will understand. Blame it on your darn bony wrists.

Tomorrow is going to be SLOW at work so I'll just list it while I'm there. Might as well have something to do. Maybe I'll wear my running clothes under my work clothes and escape for a while, LOL.
