>General Running>Garmin died just before race started...and what happened then.
Awesome, way to go.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing this. I enjoyed reading about your experience very much.
Now that you know where you really are, I guess it's time to set a new goal and get back to work.

What a great story! Congratulations!
I run with a Garmin, and I plan my races (not that I run a lot of them), but I make myself ignore the thing until I hit the mile markers. It's good to have a general idea of your pace, but as someone said you don't want to become a slave to it, especially during a race.
