Pedro the Pedometer. R.I.P

[30th March 2009 - April 29th 2009]

'tis a sad day! My fat fighting friend Pedro the pedometer died. He was hustled off of my hip and crushed to death during a stampede on the bus home from the library.

We had such a short time together but it was a time well spent. We were practically joined at the hip. Walks in the park, working out together or even just slumped on the couch, good times.

R.I.P Pedro, my stepping friend.

I am SOOOO Sorry for your loss!

Is it too soon to think about a new pedometer? I know thats what Pedro would have wanted for you :(

jessi said...

Yeah I agree with Monica - I think Pedro would want you to move on.

I know it will be hard, but it is possible. Maybe some therapy?

Noooooo! How could it happen? How could he leave this way. Why, I ask you - WHY?

RIP Pedro. He was a hard worker, and counted up a storm of steps from what Ive heard. He will be greatly missed.

Awww, poor Pedro. He was such a great companion and your relationship was so solid. It has me looking at his friends in the shops.

Those mean stampeding bus people! They just don't think!

I hope the homicidal hoarde of commuters at least stopped for a moment of silence for poor Pedro?

I agree, its time for Pedro 2!!

That sucks. Hope they aren't too expensive.

foolsfitness will dedicate the next treadmill session to our dear beloved friend Pedro.

I did not know Pedro, but I knew others like him, always by your side and ready to offer quiet support, and say..."I'm with you."

I can't believe the others who want you to just move on. At least morn him for a day.

Pedometer bodygaurds are the bodyguards of choice at the foolsfitness compound. -Alan

Carlos said...

any chance it was a suicide? poor guy jumped to his death rather than keep counting all your endless activity...

Miz said...

He lived fast and furious.
Alas, he was like a candle which burned out way way too soon.

Oh, Pedro, may you rest in peace.
