ING Class of 2012 Marathon Hydration

Happy Thursday!

This morning I woke up to a dead Garmin – dead because it’s old, I charged it all night. I know it’s on it’s last legs so I wasn’t surprised – just frustrated. My MotoActv wasn’t charged so I ran without a watch or music. Just me. Luckily, I’m used to it since SR never wants to run with me even though she

A.) lives down the street and B.) enjoys running (or so I’ve heard)

Kidding. I wouldn’t be able to keep up with her if I was driving alongside.

I did about 8 miles, but we’ll never really know with the official word from Garmino. It will remain one of life’s great mysteries kinda like Cleopatra.

Or not at all like that.

A few weeks ago I let you know that this low sodium bread is no bueno.ezekial bread thumb ING Class of 2012 Marathon Hydration

Well, it’s great as French Toast because it’s so dry and can hold up to a dip in the egg batter.IMG 6594 533x800 thumb ING Class of 2012 Marathon Hydration

    Nice video. How do you get these opportunities to do commercials? Also, how did you broaden your audience and get more people to check out your blog?

    Not sure if you’re aware but you can actually “reset” your Garmin 305 if it’s acting up (like not charging correctly) and it will start working properly.

    Press Mode (bottom left side button) and Reset (left front button) simultaneously, let go, then press On (top left side button)

    Mine was acting up a few months ago and after trying tirelessly to charge it, I just about gave up. I googled “reset Garmin” and what do you know?! Worth a try! :)

      I’ve had to use that trick in the past, but it didn’t work this morning (but I read you’re supposed to hold it down for like 30 seconds?). I’m giving it some time to rest and will try it again in a bit. Wish me luck!

    Nice Video. Sorry to hear about your Garmin, my Nike Sportwatch died the other day, and its just not the same running without it….

    I’m doing Ragnar Relay Napa Valley this fall! A relay that ends in wine country aka wine tasting will replace my chocolate milk refuel that weekend :P Do you have any tips on training and what/how to pack for a relay? It’s my first!

    Hello Monica,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back if you indeed decide to do so… (#FYI I do RT’s for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2012 and beyond Monica. Look forward to hearing from you…
