Is the "+" for the bottom figures necessary? Is it possible to have negative steps?

Put it in reverse and you can spin back the odometer.

Always here to help :thumb:

I can't see myself ever owning a folding bike or a mini-velo. That VO one is the best I've ever seen, but when frames start to get as big as I need the "mini" part kind of starts to go away...

1) If getting the disease does not confer immunity, can a vaccine confer immunity?
2) If getting the disease only confers temporary immunity, can a vaccine also only confer temporary immunity?
3) If all of the above is true, is it likely that subsequent infections are less likely to cause the severe symptoms? Obviously this will be an extrapolation.

Because if this can be reacquired, a vaccine can't stop it, and it continues to play Russian roulette with your lungs... we're just done.

1. Maybe, depends on the antigen in the vaccine.
2. Maybe, see above
3. Maybe

Obviously there is much we don’t know. I spoke briefly to our county health commissioner yesterday and asked if there is any sense on how long acquired immunity lasts, and she said they think “months” but we don’t really know.

I also expressed my disappointment that the health dept is not offering mass testing and does not seem to even be planning for it (which IMO they should), she agreed it should be done but said the barriers are all coming from the federal authorities. Sad.

But they've been graded 10/10. :foo:

I don't think I've ever enjoyed a run, but I always wished I could.

Just curious - years ago in college I lived with a runner who also worked at a shoe store, I went in and she watched the way I walked and fitted me to a pair of shoes that supposedly would help with whatever anatomical weirdness was going on in my feet.

I know that I'm much fussier about my road bike fit than I am with a MTB, is there a parallel there in the running world? Could you get away with a "worse" fitting shoe if the terrain varies a lot more?

Nice! I got my Lezyne yesterday. Quite frankly, it was a little larger than expected.

Isn't this just another way of asking how fast the virus evolves?

No. Coronaviruses mutate relatively slowly for RNA viruses and are not expected to change their antigenic spots on a regular basis, like influenza. The question is whether the virus evokes an antibody response which persists or fades with significantly with time.

Different needs on a trail, akin to differences between road biking and mountain biking.. AFAIK, no need to worry about things like pronation. You're more worried about things like protection from trail features.

That was me just throwing it on, not actually trying to fit it yet.

I got my coronavirus test back today: negative. Woo hoo! I was tested at noon on Monday and the result was in my email inbox at 11:08am. So around a 48hr turn around time for testing. My first elevated temp was around 6am on Monday and I was advised to schedule the test by work around 8:30am (not sure why I did not think of that on my own). So the whole process was super quick and easy. Its possible. I'm not sure how the feds are stopping your county from testing but not my county.

LA County announced yesterday that they are now offering free coronavirus tests to certain non-sick essential personnel- basically people that have lots of contact with others- prison guards, nursing home workers, grocery clerks, etc. Obviously there is limited info obtained from that because you could be negative today and an asymptomatic carrier tomorrow. But its so nice to see them ramping up testing because the more info we have, the better.

Regardless of surface, if you pronate, you need a shoe with big support on the medial side of the foot because of the risk of harm to your knees. If you don't you'll likely be okay (or not) with anything of reasonable quality that fits.
