Texting while jogging?
Really? Texting while jogging in Hoboken?
Unfortunately, the “smart phone” has absolutely become an extension of the human brain. We see people texting at the altar or even while having sex. That’s just plain wrong.
Then you have people who text while riding their bikes, text while driving, or just keep looking down without any kind of awareness of their surroundings.
And of course, the “victimless” acts of texting are just self-destructive, and have made way for a new illness called text necks syndrome.
But while exercising? A refreshing jog along the waterfront should be reserved for some “alone time,” where you can soak in the sights, get your rhythm and breathing synchronized, and focus on form.
This girl passed me the other day (I definitely saw the text message screen, and not music). She had terrible running form and was completely disconnected from the rest of the world. Why bother going for a run at all? Why not just not, and say you did?
