  1. Fixing Garmin straps? I have a Garmin on loan, I think a black 110 or 210 and the strap needs fixing, any ideas on how I do that? Mail to someone? Anyone had to replace a strap?

      Maybe the garmin website has spares? If not, customer support. I know I was able to get a velcro band for my 910xt (the plastic band that came with was too big/ill-fitting). Just a warning - they might be a tad on the expensive side for what should really be a cheap part...

      Mark has the right idea above :) If that doesn't work....duct tape (lol)?

      I actually had this happen a couple weeks ago with my Forerunner 10, I called Garmin and they sent out (free of charge and no charge for shipping) a replacement strap and a small tool to facilitate installing the new strap, it came fairly quickly in the post. The watch was almost a year old, I gave them the serial number off the back of the watch.

    Treadmill while kids in bath 2 km 00:10:00 08:02 pace

    Not much, but reassuring that I could run at the "12" pace without too much effort. I think 12= 5 min km, so maybe I'm getting speed back. So rainy here, TM was better than outside.

    Sacramento with Jim 3 km

    And yes, Jim is still fitter than me despite knee injections. Bumpy on cobble stones. :-) Great to catch up. Love talking about work while running. Ahhh.....

    Sacramento - with Nate McDowell 3 km

    Talked about papers before the conference. Didn't have much time as I was hosting a session at 8am. Was great to catch up though. He's still fitter than me, darn it.

    Hiking Jenny Lake

    Saw Hidden waterfall and Inspiration Point, with a fun sweet guy I met here. It wasn't a date. Just fun hiking.

  11. Interesting track fashion. Can't decide if it's cool, or, well, definitely thought provoking and will raise her profile. Good brand management if nothing else. Bows for an evening race?

      Good run Mel! Sorry I never passed along any recommendations for Wyoming, the leader of the group I run with on Sunday didn't stray to far from his hotel when he ran. There is a Teton Trail Runners club that has group trail runs.

      I love pigeon pose. :) I haven't been running as much as I was either. The legs do tend to tighten up from that. Hope you're feeling like yourself again soon!

      Thanks guys. "I should have changed the stupid locks" comes to mind. The ex kept using the house as a free grocery store, dumping ground, plus reading my mail. Anyway $129 and freedom!
