$2 garage sale find today. Wheaties Jogometer.
I'm reading it was in a cereal box either in the 1940s or 1950s- whatevs. 2 5/8" diameter.
I'm a runner so I thought this was cool. Back then a jog would mean a quickened pace of walking... ymmv :)

The things in peoples front yards

And this dudes necromancer… doesn’t seem that strange because it’s closer to Halloween but it has been in his front yard for over a year now and has different seasonal garb, like it’s summer grass skirt, heck if you’re gonna have a 12 foot tall necromancer might as well get your money’s worth out of it

Hard to argue with running. One of the fundamental human movements. For me it's mountain biking and weight lifting. For years it was wrestling and judo, but for the past few years I've slacked off on that, mainly due to fear of injury.
I hear ya. I have done Karate for a long time and have been injured a lot through that. The dojo has unfortunately (or fortunately) not reopened yet since the ol lockdown. I am worried about those ol sparing injuries but also miss it. Been thinking start lookin for a new place soon. One of the other students was also doin Judo, and he would show me stuff after class, on the mats. Yeow! I can totally see throwin out a back or breaking a neck.

That would be a great face/skin for a tracking watch like a garmin or fitbit.

BJJ is a good happy medium. Much lower impact and injury prone than Judo or full contact Karate. And, a very good grappling base.

Judo, the gentle way! :lol:
