When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
I dream of the iPhone someday being able to do all that. I would buy one in a heartbeat if it did--and if it could come with Verizon service (Cingulair doesn't work up here).
Go to http://certainintelligence.blogspot.com for my blog.
Of course among the things I miss most about running with Jim (since we no longer live near each other) are the conversations (which predictably centered around running, women, and beer).
Any interest in Bones in Motion + Verizon? http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2006/10/10/verizon-wireless-teams-up-with-bones-in-motion-to-easily-track-e/
Not to get too schmoopy here, but my ideal running partner was my high school buddy, Jim. We ran track and x-country together, and trained together during the high school and college summers back in Michigan. We more or less had the same PR's and pushed each other very hard. I have him to thank for my 1-mile PR -- he ran laps 2 and 3 with me as a "rabbit", since it was an otherwise solo effort. We shared very similar views about running such as:
►Racing: "Destroy them and everything they believe in"
►Speedwork: "If you're not dry-heaving, you're not running fast enough"
►Easy Days: "Ok, if we have to run slow, we're gonna run long."
►Rest Days: "Why would I not run?"
►Cross Training: "Dude, I have yet to see barbells at a road race."
►Anger management: Like me, he took it out on his Timex
Of course among the things I miss most about running with Jim (since we no longer live near each other) are the conversations (which predictably centered around running, women, and beer). Can't get that from a Garmin or iPod (but I'm sure they're working on it).
Ahh yes the iPhone. Problem is that I don't think I will get item number 12 on my list if Apple makes it
I do love my Nano though.
