New Speed Record


Check out the screen grab from my Garmin software. On October 17th I hit a maximum speed of 58.5 mph on my morning run. That's more than twice as fast as Usain Bolt was going when he won the 100 meter dash at the Beijing Olympics!

What were thinking? Speed limits are for the other guy? I bet you rocketed thru a school zone too! You appear to have been going twice the Brooklyn speed limit. I'm calling the BPD right now and giving them a description of ROCKET MAN! They will catch you, wait and see.

Oh no! People are going to know your secret identity!!

BPD didn't believe me, thought I drank too much coffee. They said a man moving that fast would just be a blur. I told them," Watch for red tights and yellow high tops!" They said they would.

Oh no! I've just been told there is no such animal as BPD. It's NYPD I guess. Hey I'm a redneck from OH, how would I know? What ever you call them they're going to catch that speedy Rocket Man. Can you get the speed up to 60? Please don't fall, I don't want to think about that possibility. Do you have an RM on your chest or is The Wife sewing as I type?

Are you faster in cold air or warm air? Are you still speeding in Brooklyn? You should try for a world speed record on skates, our lake is frozen. Are you invisible when you go that fast? If we can't see you how can we prove how fast you are going or if you were going at all? A conundrum don't you think?
