I SOMETIMES CREATE WEIRD COURSE PATTERNS on my training runs without giving it much thought. These up-and-down-street or round-and-round-block courses, repeated on the same roadways, are captured by my phone’s GPS distance tracker app. Mostly this seems necessary when the wind + precipitation makes the run a bit choppy. It helps me avoid spending too much time at one stretch running headlong into the “weather”. Other times the reason is to run a course that is lighted in the dark mornings or is cleared of snow or ice. Until now I haven't had a design in mind. This item in Competitor.com shows how clever runners have turned crazy running into an art form... I'm inspired!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
