Time for a photo of the day. It’s been a while, and Friday seems like the perfect time for it!
Tonight I went out for a 10-mile run. It was a simple affair: 5 miles at a Z2 heart rate, and then 5 miles at a 6:45/mile pace (4:12/KM). Nothing complex, out and back. I started at sunset after a day’s worth of work before dinner.
Around the 2.5ish mile marker while just beginning a climb away from the sea I looked down to my right and caught this old man, fishing as buck-naked as the day he was born. Just alongside the highway as if it was no big deal to be catching fish with more than one pole on display.
Just in case you think I’m kidding, here’s a bit more clarity. You can click on the image to see the non-boxed version (really, it’s just bum-cheeks):
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I carry a little camera on my run.
Outside of naked man, the run was quite nice. I was quick, heart rates were low relative to all the climbing I was doing during the run, and the scenery was awesome (no, not talking about man-scenery).
I noted yesterday how many swimmers are out here swimming. Today I’ll point out just how many cyclists I’ve seen in early evening out riding. I probably saw 50 cyclists out during my run tonight. Really cool.
Outside of a few random spots like this, I was mostly able to run on a little path along the side of the road. There wasn’t much traffic at this time of day.
While the waters aren’t turquoise at sunset, the view is still great. This was taken during my last three miles, just as I neared the top of one of the climbs on the way back.
With that, have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!
(And yes, I suppose this is more like photos of the day…but hey, why limit?)
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
