  1. I mean to ask you, how did you like your Garmin?? Which one did you end up getting?

    • Long story! I bought the 210 and the 110. Like the 110 more. But I returned the 210 and ordered the 220. Waiting for it to arrive tomorrow. I will probably keep the 220 and send back the 110. I need to educate myself on how to use it. At the race on Sunday when the laps reached the maximum for the intervals the timer stopped on me or I didn’t know what I was doing.

      • Haha, when you wrote that you were getting a Garmin to use for the marathon I almost wrote “make sure you play with it and learn how to use it before the race!” because those things sure as heck aren’t intuitive! I hated mine at first until I really learned how to use it. The Garmin website has some great tutorial videos to teach you how to use all the functions. I have the 205 now but but it’s almost 3 years old so I’ve been thinking about replacing it with the 220…looking forward to hear what you think about it!
