I ' m sitting in my garage hoping someone will stop and buy the stuff I have in my driveway . It ' s one of those neighborhood wide garage sales or else we wouldn ' t have bothered .
It was supposed to start at 7am , but the creepers were out at 6 : 15 . I was too , running my 3 . 1 mile loop while trying to stay in heart rate zone 3 . I downloaded some workouts from Garmin Connect that are based on heart rate to see how that feels . Today was 45 minutes of hills in zone 3 . The tough part of this is having to practically sprint downhill and almost walk uphill .
A Nintendo DS with a slightly scratched screen sold for $ 5 . Nice Hispanic guy picked that up for a kid I ' m sure . A grandfather was doing some Christmas gift shopping and bought the Rapunzel tower for $ 4 .
Usually I only have to watch out for the paper delivery guy on my early morning runs , but the folks hoping to be the first at the sales were creeping around while I tried to obey my Garmin ' s ' be be be boo ' ( HR too low ) or ' be be be beep ' ( too high ) warnings . I was careful because I knew the driver ' s eyes were looking at driveways and not for ninja runners .
A lady bought two lap trays for her first grade class . I feel bad taking even a quarter each from a school teacher . Two X - Box games went for one dollar each . We found those at a college dorm when helping my sister - in - law move out .
The zone 3 workout translated into a 7 : 30 pace for 6 miles . My run ended with an easy cool down mile . Then I started getting the stuff out to sell .
My wife says I sell things too cheaply . I feel like most garage sale shoppers are not rolling in the dough and are out for a bargain . I don ' t want to disappoint .
