Marathon Date Change = No Marathon for Me

Last week, I was notified that the marathon I had signed up for several weeks ago (and started training for) shifted the day by one day. The problem was I had already built part of a trip around that marathon and was flying our directly after.

So, that means I no longer have the marathon. 🙁 Good news, I can concentrate instead on a half marathon I love doing in October and to try something new, I am using the Garmin Coach. This uses metrics from your watch and body to calculate appropriate workouts for you. So far so good!
