So this is my usual run home… Pretty straight forward, right? I run down 19th st, and though I’m not really running around on the street, but on sidewalks instead, I forgive the Garmin for not knowing that. I always go down the same route for 2 reasons: I like having something concrete to compare my runs against, and I found out the hard way that not all streets leading up to Constitution Av have a crossing light.
Now this is what it THINKS I ran last Monday. WTF? Those gray boxes I’m running zigzag on? Those are buildings, people, not parks. This is downtown DC, after all. My Garmin thinks I can cross walls. No wonder it registered an extra 0.12 miles!
Has anyone ever had this happen to them before? What kind of wonky satellite signal was it picking up??
