[blank] while texting

the other day, an idea popped into my head: running a track-and-field-while-texting contest.

say you're going to have competitors all running a mile. Give them a page of text to type, either something that they memorized or something that's read to them via headphones or displayed for them via google glass - and give them a smartphone of their choice. When the gun goes off, they run the mile and type at the same time. they get points for WPM and get docked for inaccuracies either in typos or in false autocorrects. They also get penalized for accidentally running out of bounds.

It could culminate with them driving through cones. Then they should do a similar course either a day before or after without the texting. And it should all be videotaped.

I would fail so hard on this, and probably hurt myself in the process. :P
