|Have strong jawline, will travel|
This Sunday I did something that I rarely do. I wore a shirt while I ran! Of course, the only reason that I would wear a shirt when it is above 50 degrees? I ran with other people!! Real live humans – as opposed to running with a blogger buddy in my ear via a podcast. (Update: Oops, as I think about it, I put my shirt on AFTER I ran. Dang)
As my last “long” run before the St George marathon, this weekend I was scheduled to run 10 miles. Since I wasn’t as concerned about running a specific pace or distance necessarily, I made arrangements to run the first hour or so by myself and then meet up with my runner buddy Jeff, and run another 2 or so miles. It was a blast. We talked about what I assume all people who run in groups talk about:
- Upcoming races
- Booty shorts
- Family and kid goings on
- The Triathlon group that ran by and how fit they were in their stupid sports bras and pecks bouncing and fancy expensive shoes and....bastards
Running with others was fun, as opposed to when I run alone 95% of the time – where my witty remarks go unappreciated and no one is there to hear me chatter. The tragedy! It was a great run. I ran the first half of my solo time easy and the last half progressively faster – to the point of getting down around 6:40 or so per mile. Afterwards we met up with another runner friend, Suzanne, and all had coffee. Good times were had by all (Sunday Church social style)
At one point we were talking about running and I realized that I forgot to stop my garmin after the run. Annoying, as it showed a pace 3 min slower than I know that I had ran. But, that was ok... I stopped it said a bit of a swear that my perfect data was going to be quirky. It was only when I got home that the true issue presented itself. The “history” of my run was nowhere to be found. IT WAS LIKE THE RUN DIDN’T HAPPEN!!!??? Of course, I do what everyone does when something bad happens to them – I took to twitter to complain about it.
I was offered a few good suggestions on what the reason could be, but none of them worked. But then....a few people started to suggest some things that really sounded like they could be true:
Oh crap, I think he is right!!!
Hmm, this doesn't help my data issue though.
Funny? Yes. Sort of like getting kicked in the junk w/ a baseball bat is funny when you tell the story.
I should be a detective. Like Maury Povitch! I basically figured out his paternity.
Has this happened to anyone else? Runs just disappear from the history when you try to sync? Halp!?
