Forerunner

Yipee! Just the day before my first marathon, with Noèl Köthe (who's targetting 3h30, crazy Noèl) and Ralf Treinen (who's targetting 4h), I got a Garmin Forerunner 405 Sport GPS device as birthday gift.

So, I'll apparently be able to enter the modern world and adapt my pace more easily than earlier (with my mechanical podometer and the stopwatch function of my cell phone).

And that thing has even a Debian package, maintained by...Ralf and Noèl..:-) ...though I have no idea whether it works with a Forerunner 405 as the original author apparently owns a 305. We'll see. If you somehow happen to see blog posts of mine with the GPS track of the Paris Marathon, I made it work (or I cheated and used a Windows machine...).
