The Distance Debate


Just thought you might want to see this part of my run. Courtesy of my Garmin, you can see me zig zagging on my way out. I am about 3/4 of a mile into my run as I head west (right to left). The straight line is me heading back home. No games here, as I'm about 3 miles into the run.
I did it for fun a couple weeks back, but it did add some distance to my run. I've been thinking about running and making designs at the same time. Like a Garmin crop circle.
I do like to have fun when I run.
I found a new gadget I want. It's only $399 and every runner has sunglasses. The reason it would be cool, is that I want to run, map and photo my experience and stopping to take out my cell phone to snap a picture doesn't always work with the running part.

Maybe I just haven't been running long enough to think of making my own garmin crop circles!

Oooh, now I think you have something... Doing runs with your GPS device to make pictures! The possibilities!

Pat I can only imagine what the neighbors were thinking when they saw this.

It was 105 out. No one in their right mind was outside.
