I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Garmin, you really piss me off at times!

I don’t know why my expectations of you are greater than RunKeeper. Maybe it’s the fact that I doled out $450 for you, compared to zilch for RunKeeper w/ its free service! And, I know I was gonna do an in depth comparison, but at this point, I can’t be bothered. I will say, both are great – most of the time. And, while in the grand scheme of things, improperly measuring distance occasionally ain’t exactly life-and-death. When I approach my 1K marker, and nothing happens … and I continue running, and still nothing?! Garmin’s inaccuracies still piss me off! I know damned well I ran at least 1.08 (maybe 1.1)K before my wrist buzzed. No fucking way I ran 5:08 … was def a 4:40 – 4:45. I said it before, I’ll say it again … all I want is to be credited with what I did. It’s what I deserve. AND, it affected the rest of my run – was playing on my mind the whole time. To be conservatively fair, I know I ran at a 4:47 min/k pace … corrected time would shave a minute off, crediting me with 1:07. Do any of you have the same issues Garmin? Do you care?

today’s 14K … record run too …

but we can get there if we try

it seems there’s something deep inside of you
and I can tell that you’ve been lonely
and you’ve had hard times too

cause we believed for nothing it seems
and now it’s shattered all apart and like a broken heart
it’s the end it’s a start

I don’t wanna talk about that anymore when there’s nothing going on and something should be done

and I wanna live if I have to die
if I have to die if I have to die

You ever heard the story of Mr. Faded Glory?

Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
Talkin’ to my alter say life is what you make it
And if you make it death well rest your soul away

Dreams like this must die
And a dream like this must die
Dream like this must …

the apple and the tree

Pics, and a little lauding perhaps … maybe faint, but praise nonetheless … and this blog’s the only voice I got, so here I speak. I’ll start with some numbers … January 6, 1935 … 1935 – 2013 = 78 … 39 + 39 = 78 … 49 … 39 + 49 = 88 … 88 – 78 = 10 … yep, ten … now the pics, bunch of oldies and a single goodie …
