Can my Garmin Find Satellites in Mexico?


I bought a ticket today to meet up with my mom in Mexico for 7 days, starting in less than 48 hours! I have never done anything this spontaneous before and am totally excited. She was down there and her friend that was supposed to meet her got sick, so I graciously offered to come down. I'll be gone from 3/4-3/10...perfect.

I am going to continue to train while there - Shawn is going to shift around my training plan for this, so I'm interested to see what he gives me for swimming and running. I'm totally envisioning open water and runs on the beach. Anyone have experience with either that could give me some advice?

I will likely be offline during that time but full updates and reports as soon as I return!

I enjoy open water swimming but for me it always takes a little bit to get used to the waves and the sloshing.

Have a great time, soak up some rays for me, I am sooooo white right now!

mexico on the spur of the moment. Damn you know how to roll. Have fun. Open water swimming in warm salt water is the best!! You'll feel like your not going anywhere, but keep swimming. have fun

Have a great time! What a fun spur-of-the-moment thing to do!

My Garmin has gone to Mexico and Tahiti...you'll be a.o.k. It just might take some extra time to pick 'em up at first.

Have a blast! That photo looks oh so inviting.
