I finally made my decision and bought myself a gift (though I know family is willing to help with it)! I decided on the Garmin 410. After looking at lots of reviews of the 405 Bri did not like the reviews of the 405. Though it was big time on sale on Amazon the other day~ I love deals!! But I also want the garmin to be reliable. The reviews of the 410 was battery life. I am hoping that it will not give me any problems with my last few weeks of marathon training!

I have also been using Carb Boom energy gels prior to long runs lately. I really like them and have noticed that I have more energy right off the bat! Down side...I dont know anywhere to get them but online. I have them sitting in my cart on amazon at the moment. But it is a pack of 24 and I have no clue if I need that many. Anyone know if I can find these anywhere else??

It is going to be a busy Bday month as well as a wedding/baby shower month. My dad's bday is in 2 weeks and Hey Hey and I both Have bdays at the beginning of Sept. Then manda is getting married 9/10/11. LeLe also is having her baby shower in September. I have made my list and I am ready to hit the mall if not the online shopping for all of these!

QOTD: Do you have a time of year when there are lots of bdays?
I share my bday with 6 other family members and then 3 others have bday that same week!! My cousin is also expecting a baby on bday!! So exciting but lots of gift shopping!!

enjoy your garmin!
we have 13 nieces and nephews (and that is just my husband's side), so birthdays never stop. January, April, and August are very costly!
