    Yes I've used it before and it's quite accurate. Great if you have family there as they can see exactly when you are due at a certain location.

    Oh yay Andy, that tweeting worked! I am glad I even got those updates on my phone :). Gosh, I am part of social networking, I am clever ;) Just a thought, how you gonna tweet while you are running? Won't it slow you down? :happy:

    I am glad, now I can follow your progress in the marathon all the way over here. Ain't technology fun....sometimes!
