Obviously our society has become overly dependant on technology. I'm not talking about the necessities, like transportation, but more the devices and gadgets that we arm ourselves with each morning before venturing out into the real world. Look at anyone nowadays anywhere and there is a very high chance you'll catch them using some high tech gizmo. This isn't a rant about obnoxious cell phone users in public places - my biggest pet peeve. Why is it that these people also feel they need to talk louder into their phones?
Back on track...
I'm proposing a tech hiatus. Let's make a stance for simplifying. For getting back to just us and nature. It's time we free ourselves of these technological shackles that bind us to material gadgets. How often have these devices interfered with your family time? Your training?? WHO'S WITH ME??? I begin this movement right now with a nice trail run - just nature and me.
Of course I'll have to update everyone so I'll allow my laptop to survive the movement. If you want to track my run in nature, I'll be wearing my MyAthlete device. No criticism on my pace - I'm still sticking to my heart rate plan. In fact, my heart rate monitor will beep if I go over it. Hmmm, this may be hard to hear though with my ipod on. Shit, I'll get back to this blog in a bit, I have an important cell call coming in.
