Marathon Success

Just so everyone knows, you can maintain an active life with a PM. I just completed my first ever 2007 Boston Marathon in 5 hrs with no issues or complications. I also trained with the Polar F2 heart rate monitor without issue. What a feeling crossing that finish line !

That is awesome hawk. I got my pm 6 weeks ago. A month before I was to try my first marathon. I'd love to hear the answers to Cathryn's questions. I'd also be curious about issues you had with the pm in training. Why did you get the pm? Any other physical issues you dealt with?
Boston huh. Theres not much left now to accomplish, except maybe the Western States 100 haha.
Congratualation, that is too cool.

Wow! Congratulations 330hawk -- that's fabulous! How long have you had your PM? How quickly were you able to begin running and training for the marathon? This must not be your first marathon as you must have run another to qualify for Boston, right? Did you qualify before or after getting the PM? I'm a runner too, but not a marathoner, though there are several others on this site. I'm really impressed, and your experience is quite inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing it! Take care, Cathryn
