Garmin FR610 in Amazon sale

I picked a refurbished 610 up for under £100 from ebay with a two year warrantee and a few little extras.

Good as new.

P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Hi Super Moo. What times did you get in those? 

Runspoonrun, why 3.15? to get a GFA for London or Boston or something, or you just being ambitious?

Brighton was 3h57.10 and New York was 4h02.38.

Funnily enough I am more than happy with New York as I hadn't realised my watch lost GPS a couple of times under the bridges and I thought I was in for around 4h20 so was just taking it easy with a view to enjoying the experience.  So coming in that "fast" was more than a nice surprise.

London Marathon for me in the Spring. 

Did my first two marathons this year, Brighton and New York using the 18/55 schedule.

Wondering if I can improve on my times by sticking to the same plan.

Cost of older Garmin models

There is a seller on eBay, tokata3620, in the US, that deals in recon garmin watches.

Picked up a 610 at half the price plus it came with double the warrantee that garmin provide when you buy new and you don't need to send it back to the States either.

I suspect the seller is garmin.

 

Gels etc when entering the States

Good point.  Prefer to be prepared before but will look into where I can get them when there.

Hi All,

Having a minor panic.

New York Marathon this weekend.  I have packed my gels and some "just add water" porridge pots into my luggage for race day.

Do I need to declare these when I enter the US?

I have found the following linked from US Customs and Boarder Protection...

http://www.aphis.usda.gov/wps/portal/aphis/ourfocus/planthealth/sa_international/sa_travel?1dmy&urile=wcm%3apath%3a%2Faphis_content_library%2Fsa_resources%2Fsa_traveler%2Fct_general_allowed_food_items

which says:

"The following food items are generally allowed entry:

  • Condiments such as oil, vinegar, mustard, catsup, pickles, syrup, honey without honey combs, jelly, and jam.
  • Foodstuffs such as bakery items, candy, and chocolate.
  • Hard cured cheeses without meat, such as parmesan or cheddar.
  • Canned goods and goods in vacuum- packed jars (except those containing meat or poultry products) for personal use.
  • Fish or fish products for personal use.
  • Powdered drinks sealed in original containers with ingredients listed in English.
  • Dry mixes containing dairy and egg ingredients (such as baking mixes, cocoa mixes, drink mixes, instant cake mixes, instant pudding mixes, liquid drink mixes containing reconstituted dry milk or dry milk products, potato flakes, and infant formula) that are commercially labeled, presented in final finished packaging, and require no further manipulation of the product are generally allowed.

Remember, you must declare all food and agricultural products, including those listed above, to a CBP agriculture specialist or officer when you arrive in the United States."

Which implies I can bring them in but still need to mention it.

Any advice?

Cheers

Neil
