I’ve been avoiding it for some time, two years actually but I’m back to a smart phone. Not a current phone mind you, my wife’s old IPhone 4 but still a big improvement technically from the Go-phone I was using.
In all honesty I was happy not to have a smart phone. I had gotten myself into trouble with one in the past and though it was simple a means of misbehaving (not the reason) it was good to have it away.
However I did miss a couple things. I was unable to take picture of my girls when we were out and about. Like these:
Water is nice on a hot day in the desert. So I hear.
I am happy to be taking pictures of the girls again. And myself too I guess.
I ran the La Luz Trail run for the second time. Finished in just a few minutes shy of my last time so at least I’m consistent. It’s a crazy hard but fun race up a mountain. Very steep but very runnable. Read up on it and try it out.
Last but not least I can track my runs and bikes (is that a word). Actually I have been running with the Zombies again. Zombies Run! is an amazing clever and well written running app that will make you laugh and cry and laugh some more. Yes I will run to the gameshop and pick up some DnD books and minis in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Abel Radio has the funniest hosts and the interval chases (built in interval sprints) are pure genius.
So I guess the technology is fun to have again. But it is just a means to an end.
