I used for the first time the Timex Bodylink that Hugh gave me for my birthday (not till Oct 31). It keep track of distance, elevation, HR, and pace. I found a free website Bones in Motion to upload the results except for HR. This device provides an amazing amount of data. I left the data recorder on a little long so the time that it gives for my run is longer than actual time. The map that it shows on my blog is static. However, if you are a member, you can search for routes created by andyman68 and see the Google Maps to zoom in.

Sun- HOA Course, 23.75 mi, 3:16:04, 8:15/mi, Avg HR-137

I’m experimenting with creating maps on other sites since you can’t view the maps on BIM unless you are a member.

HOA Course Map Test 2 (slow)

To get to this point with the Timex I had to use GPS Visualizer Convert to convert the Timex TXT file to a GPX file.

I then uploaded the GPX file to MapMyRun

I also have a Google API Maps Key and will try embedding the maps on my own website. I think this will work better.

Do you expect to break 3 hrs on the marathon? Your so close to it.

I'm hoping to in Chicago. I'm never really sure where I am in my training since I'm never at my peak due to the fatigue of training.
