I want this bike! or, the aliens are talking to me

While out for a walk at lunch time yesterday I saw this bike on Stephen Avenue. I want!



Ran after work today. Limbered up, ran easy 10 minutes, ran fairly hard for 15 minutes, and easy for 5. Stretched after. Normally I swim on Wed morning, and I just had no desire to this morning. Maybe tomorrow.

There is a light behaving oddly at work. It's just down the hall, where I see it every time I leave my office. It's flickering in Morse code. I'm sure of it. I learned Morse as a kid so I know. But it's been a long time, and I've long since forgotten the actual codes for letters. Well, except for S and O. But there it was, flickering away. The light people were around the floor yesterday fixing lights, so it should be good, right? What could make it flicker in such a regular way? Normally light bulbs either work by flickering so fast no human can see it, or they don't work at all. My office roomie didn't notice it at all, just me. I figure it has to be aliens, trying to send me a message. What else could it be? Maybe I'm an alien spy gone AWOL and native, and they're trying to rescue me.

On a more rational topic, has anyone tried the Iron Trac app for following a bunch of athletes?

  2. I tried the IronTrac app and liked it. then they changed it and required me to connect to facebook to use it and I haven't used it since.

  3. I have used Iron Trac as well. Overall I liked it. the one thing I didnt like about it was you sometimes could not add people to your track list until minutes before the race. I do find it handy though.

  4. It looks like a custom build. I've never seen anything else like it.

  5. Now you can opt out of connecting to Facebook. But it won't let me add athletes yet.

  6. As you say. Tried to add people and couldn't. I'll wait till the day before the race and then try again. And again and again if necessary. Following IM on the internet is almost as much of an ordeal as the race.

  7. Hey Keith can you let us know when you can add IMC people? I may get some family/friends to get it, if it works that is. Course it is only 99cents, but they may be annoyed if I tell them to purchase if they can't even add my name.

  8. That's a pretty sweet bike... like a chopper or something... And I ALWAYS see the lights flicker... some people can't see it. It gets more pronounced before the light just goes out (or the aliens have landed). Good luck!

  9. I will do that. It doesn't seem to be smart enough to look at the bib list. It looks at the athlete tracking page, so until that is live, I suspect nothing will happen for the app.
