. . is perhaps the least surprising part of this. The track is pretty interesting. 7 minutes a mile for the first two miles; start and finish on the top of mountains on opposite sides of the river; mad dash straight across the river (or is it just that iced up?)

I don't know what happened, but I think I know what Phil's explanation would be -- it's clearly a message from the gods (the elevation indicates that, and who else who waste time hacking my Garmin), and they're saying you ought to get off your butt, HTFU, and do proper workouts for a change.

There's a lot of ice on the river, but nothing you'd want to try to stand on. The current moves right along.

A college friend of mine who grew up near Albany would amuse himself when he was younger by crossing the Hudson on ice, jumping from floe to floe. He would carry a long stick to help himself get back up on the ice if he fell in. Maybe you could try that.

Then I was thinking that maybe this was a track from a hang glider ride, although I can't imagine that the launch or the landing is an area that J-J would recommend. Or maybe a balloon ride, although the elevation is quite a bit much for that, too.

Of course. Makes perfect sense.

On a high climb 15,000+ with my first altimeter watch got a readout that said "too high". Pretty much summed it up.
