This weekend's long run

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."

Run distance: 17 miles
Avg. pace: 09:35/mile
Best pace: 7:10/mile
Calories: 2102

I'm old school? Does your website have a link like this on it?

I only got a serial port with my GPS (who's old school now?) which my laptop will not accomodate so I can't get on the site. And my mother-in-law's computer has so much security I can't get to the site.

Check out - it might be helpful for your friend. :)

Four minute miles WOULD be nice, but 9 minute miles rock in their own right, too.

Keep running!
