The bean bags used to break the 50-mile joggling world record last weekend were 12 panel Dodeca Gballz. They are excellent for joggling because they are durable, don’t absorb water or odors, and are perfectly sized (at least for my hand).
But now they’ve raised a mystery. Can anyone tell me what could possibly be an explanation for the following pictures?
Look at the strange red markings on the bean bag. This didn’t happen immediately after the marathon but showed up a day or two after. It showed up on all the bean bags to some extent but this one had the most. It wasn’t everywhere but just in certain spots. The red marking did not wash away. This picture was taken on October 10th, 2007.
Now, look at what the Gballz joggling bag looks like now. The red markings have mysteriously vanished. This is after they were used in the 50-mile ultra marathon. Again they got a little Gatorade and water on them but not nearly as much heat. This picture was taken on November 1, 2007.
So, there you have it joggling fans. Do you have any idea what this strange red markings could be? Is it bacterial contamination? A message from God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster? What is it?
