I don't own any fancy equipment either and frankly, don't even care about it. Gets too high tech for me! But some people love it and nothing wrong with that. But for us plain folk....and it still is a little bit "techy", I go to: www.mapmyrun.com
...map out my run course and see where my "markers" are and check my watch.
For my first marathon, my main focus is on just finishing. But of course, there is that hopeful time frame still stuck in my head & heart. I tell myself that is going on the back burner....and it is going to be what it is.
Long Distance Runs become VITAL at this level and that has been my main focus for my first half coming up this Sunday. A little longer each weekend....
Good luck in your first half and training.... Sounds to me like you are on the right track!
