Running "naked"

Not naked naked--naked of trendy devices.

Jason Gay, WSJ, May 29, 2014, says he has taken to running off with no watch, fitness wristband, heart-rate monitor, virtual coach, headphones, music, or smartphone.

The nerve of this guy!

And he actually likes it. He says all the devices were making him into an anxious robot. He brings his key and a five-dollar bill. He leaves a note saying where he is headed--phoneless.

One big plus is that if your body starts to flag or hurt, you will notice--the music or trying to get your heart rate up won't distract you.

And you might even notice a beautiful sunrise or smell a rose.
