ZAZ: For those of you not from the Boston area, the "Charles River" is in fact made of water. I have not noticed purple runners dashing diagonally across it instead of using the bridges.


It's an error in RunKeeper and other similar phone-based running apps. Whenever a phone's GPS fails or stutters after a route's begun, it'll connect the dots from the last time it did lock on. That's why, for any runner who's serious about tracking themselves, it's worth it to get a dedicated GPS watch. Cellphone GPS units and apps aren't reliable for running.

Cubicle Jockey: New York's seems to be skewed by the Marathon route.

Yeah the lack of lines doing the entire Central Park circle made me suspicious too--on any average summer day you'll find the entire Central Park loop packed. The authors really should have subtracted data from the dates of each city's marathon or other major races.

I wouldn't be farking surprised if they did do exactly that. During the recent snowstorm I saw several joggers playing chicken with snowplows and other traffic, just blithely jogging along in the middle of Massachusetts Avenue in the slush and sleet and salt. I realize they need to be maxxed out and look cut and feel the burn, but I'm pretty sure you can take a break for a day or two and not lose that endorphin high.

It's times like these I'm confirmed in my suspicions that running is a form of OCD disguised as an exercise regimen.


You sound fat.

Lol at the Dallas map.  No one goes jogging across the trinity river.  Not if you value your life that is.
