The Virtual Reality Game That Turns You Into Frogger

It’s called Jogger, of course, and is identical to the old Konami arcade game. Here’s video of how it works, but I don’t know if the cartoony music is part of the experience.

A little too similar to my morning run for my taste.

The Difference Between Jogging and the Long Jump

About three feet… and then about 40 feet.

Hooded Runner Is No Hood

A couple of days ago I warned you not to dress like a bum while out running, lest you be mistaken for a vagrant. Today we have an even more serious example of what can go wrong through an innocent choice of running apparel.

Three Pennsylvania fourth-graders at recess told teachers they saw a man in a tree-lined area next to the school with a firearm, wearing dark clothes and a ski mask. The school was immediately placed in lockdown, police and parents were notified, and 75 officers responded, including 30 from an area SWAT team.

After a thorough search of the area, police were led to a neighborhood home, where they discovered the culprit was a jogger, unarmed in any way, and wearing a hood, not a ski mask.

Of course we’re all happy that it was just a mistake and the kids are safe, but it could have been very dangerous for the innocent jogger as well. That’s why I’m suggesting everyone start wearing one of these.
