Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon

A Dance with Monkeys

    The gravity service corrects the elevation. When you run without it, your GPS gets loads of artifact, mostly due to arm swing. The gravity service throws out the elevation from the GPS unit and replaces it with elevation from USGS reference standards, the same method RA uses. And it still tends to overestimate elevation change, but not by much. When you changed it in your activity, the graph that I posted gets changed by motionbased automatically.

      so what you are saying is that the things that I'm thinking are hills are really not so big??
        Do the monkeys keep pets?

            1. Death Valley 2. Dead Sea 3. New Orleans 4. Garmin error Pick one. The thing with the Monkey is, the hills are relentless. They come one after another with no flat portion for recovery. You have been warned.
            There is a positive side to this....you will be so busy focusing on the next hill, that you'll forget to worry about the fact that there are 26.2 miles to cover.....

              hmm I like your philosophy on that... And it would probably work - breaking the race into small chunks/hills.

                Sure. That'll work. Keep telling yourself that. Bet nobody's ever thought of that before, either. Heck, now its gonna be easy for you.

                        Idiot

                          I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.

                            You rang?
                            Yeah, sorry. Didn't mean to speak for you. Tanya meant you, of course. And Jilly. Nannies, both of you.

                              The idea of me as a nanny, especially a humorless one, is just so chock full of humor. My brother and his wife won't leave me alone with their two-year old (nothing gross, Pervy McPervypants... that's my niece), probably because after five minutes with me she'd be swearing at the TV and belching. Or maybe belching swear words.

                              I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.

                                But that is a vital life skill. Don't her parents want to prepare her for school?
