      You need to install the Garmin communicator plugin for your browser. Good luck :)

      Also, the Garmin communicator plugin never really worked for me on Chrome browser. Better luck trying Firefox or other browsers.

      I'm not even gonna lie, I had to stop and walk a few times during this one. TOO many HILLS! Anywhooo, this was the funniest 5k I've ever run! There were zombies everywhere! Each runner had two flags (the thin little flag football flags) attached to their pants. As we ran the race we had to dodge ugly zombies who were scattered throughout the race course. My pace sucked, I was tired but I had so much fun! Btw, I'm lovin' my new Garmin! Great way to break it in......3.11 miles on my new toy

      Why are you eating in the day? When do you sleep? Isit possible to curtail the eating to 1 meal and 1 snack?

      When I worked graveyard for a couple years, I would usually sleep from 8am-1pm. When I woke up, I would have some breakfast (cereal usually, or yogurt and granola) soon after I got up. I would end up hungry again usually around dinner time (5-6pm) and I would end up eating whatever the family was having for dinner. I would then pack some snacks and a light "night dinner" for work, and I would eat the snacks until my lunch break, and then eat the meal I packed. I would have another light snack for after.

      If you want to eat frequently, I don't see why not, just pack light snacks to have all the time!

      I totally feel you. I work from 7p to 7a and finding the right time to eat is hard. I kind of try and stay on a somewhat normal schedule though. I eat lunch when I wake up, snack sometime before work, dinner during my lunch break, a snack sometime before I get off, and breakfast when I get off

      It's nice to see you running again. Arriving at the start line injury-free is a a step towards finishing on two feet.

    Do any of you use any of these apps for your runs? Well, of course I have Electric Miles. Looking for a good "keep track of my runs" app.

    • Karen K.

      I use Nike+ App on iPhone. It works pretty well! for GPS tracking using the iPhone GPS (no pod needed or anything). I also have the GarminFit App... But I've never actually used it to track my runs. :)
