San Francisco has some goofy races.

Here's a video of a tricicle, or big wheeel race in San Francisco that's funny.

Long documentary about it is here.

Some downhill skateboarders are into dangerous competition.

Luge Roller Coaster Road racing seems even more interesting.

Onyango,

Why not have a cycling, various types of wheel chair, or skate boarding races simultaniously?

Isn't the important thing to get people out and mingling while encouraging physical activity - even for people who may have limited physical ability?

I will be participating in a half marathon in two weeks time. I don't like running. I wish I could cycle in the event, it would be much better. I will go and suffer, that I know and I am ready for. How much I will suffer I am still unsure

I purchased a pair of trecking poles and walked around with them for a couple of days. I thought they helped me move around without causing trouble in my joints. I thought if I use these and walk often the rubber tips will wear out so called the store I purchased them from.  The store said the trekking poles were discontinued and replacement (rubber) tips weren't available so I returned them -

Thinking I'm not going to purchase a new pair of poles every time the tips wear out.

Planned obsolescence.

You can't be creative. Just swift :-)

I volunteer to end the misery. How creative can I be? =)

I can walk alright :)

How about walking:

Comment was by Adriana on February 3, 2013 at 5:55pm

I'm still attempting to run. I can't give up in spite of what my doctor thinks. I may be terminally stupid. Last weekend I ran 1 mile on the treadmill, my knee bothered me a bit but not too much. This week I tried the treadmill again. After 1/2 mile my back hurt, I think I was stepping wrong or something. Ugh. I stuck with my elliptical routine. I can work up a good sweat that way and keep my heart rate up. It snowed, so biking in the park on a road bike would be suicidal.

I wasn't born to be a couch potato. When I can't exercise anymore, somebody please put me out of my misery.
