Ran & finished my first marathon today. KY Derby Festival Marathon in Louisville, KY. 

 Due to gross mismanagement of nutrition/hydration (got a lot to learn) it took 5:00:31. I drank/ate too much too early and was horribly sluggish for most of the 2nd half. BUT I FINISHED.

With great trepidation I ask this...My first marathon is this coming Sat (4/19 Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon) and I'm debating whether or not to wear my Garmin (FR620); and if I wear the watch the next question is to wear the heart rate monitor or not.

I feel that wearing the watch and being aware of my pace would help me slow down at the start and not "go out too fast". My inclination is to wear the watch sans HRM. I can always turn it off or just ignore it (ok maybe not, I'll admit to being metrics junkie). 

The downside is getting caught up watching the watch and missing out being in the moment.

If your real concern is to not be a clock watcher, turn the watch so the face is on the underside of your wrist.  Having to turn your wrist differently will be a cue to pay attention to the moment.

Where was the first trail race held? My score was 3/9.
Maybe you're a hardened ultramarathoner. Maybe you just like to lace up your shoes a couple of times a week and go for a jog. But how much do you really know about running? Test your knowledge of the history and science of the two-legged life with our quiz.

probably better than eating and drinking to little. Next time you'll get it dialed in.

So I picked these up today...race bib and T-shirt for my first marathon (Derby Festival Marathon, Louisville, KY) and a guidebook for what's next.

Test your running IQ. I got 3/9 but learned a lot.

I got 5; not bad considering two were a complete guess!

Today was a good day. If you consider running over 20 miles for nearly 3.5 hours good. And I do.
