Billy finally saw the light and purchased current technology. He was in denial about his old school stride measuring step-o-meter. We've been running side-by-side, him using the step-o-meter, me using the Garmin GPS, and his was always getting us to the turn around point early. The longer our run, the furthr apart our gadgets read.
Last week, we're running on the downhill side of a bridge, and Billy is like, "man, we're doing four minutes a mile right now!"
I lookd at my GPS and it said we we're doing about eight minutes a mile, but I didn't have the heart to say anything. He was comfortable with his denial. So I just say, "Cool."
