Added advantage of holiday season weight gain (Read 895 times)


Fool

    On yesterday's run, I experienced a personal first that had me giggling all day. Maybe it was the weight gain, but for the first time ever I registered on one of those radar speed displays in town. YOUR SPEED 6 MPH It was only up for a second, but I looked at my garmin and shouted back, "SIX POINT FOUR". Big grin

        You wrote what I thought, but didn't write. Seriously...great post. That is hilarious.

                Heh, I run by one all the time during my route from my gym. It always flashes 6...7...6...7...6...7. One of these days I'm gonna sprint and see how high I can get it Big grin.

                  Actually the speed limit is 30 for this stretch. I wonder if I can find one that photographs violations and see if I can be ticketed for going too slow. I would frame that picture and ticket. Glad you all got a kick out of it too.

                    There is one right by my house that's been there for over a month. One day it said 4 (my garmin had me at a 9 min/mile pace) - the next day it said 9. Every other time I've passed it it says 7. I don't think it's spot on when it comes to people v. cars.

                    Bring it on.

                      There is one that is used occasionaly in my neighborhood. I haven't been able to get it to register while I run. I always thought it would be a good avatar to get a picture while I sprint at it and hope a passing car would set it off at something over the 25 mph speed limit (which is on a sign directly above the radar display). But then I realized I'd have to ask my wife to stand around and take pictures of this foolishness. And I lose the motivation to try.
