Formaggio - I'd say just use one pace band. One that measures 26.2 and gives the splits in miles/kms, which ever measurement you prefer. Don't use your watch for distance, just use it for the clock, so when you pass the first course marker you can then look at your watch and see if you are pacing it correctly.
Personally I'm not someone who checks the watch all the time. I only check every 5km. One thing to remember is that you're running through a beautiful city. Take the time to look up and try and enjoy and take-in the experience.
Meadower - Don't worry those of us from north of the wall often baffle people with our accents. Plus Emmy can do a very posh voice, way posher than a Morningside accent!
