Running Maps, As Art!

I came across this link on my facebook last night, and had to share it!

Nathan Yau compiled data from the app, Runkeeper, and made maps of the popular running routes in 22 different cities around the world!

New York City!

My old running route in Brooklyn isn’t represented… Probably because it was WAY too hilly!  On the New York map, you can very clearly see that one of the most popular routes is the NYC Marathon!  I’d be very curious to see if that’s the same with the other cities that I’m less familiar with.

London

London!

Have I ever mentioned that my favorite city in the world is London? I don’t think I’ll ever run a Marathon, but if I do, you’d better believe it would be in London. Right now, I just dream of doing a big lap around Hyde Park and running along the Thames! Both look to be popular routes!

I wonder if I can get any of these framed…They’d look great in a home gym!

Do you/ have you run along any of these routes?
Where is your dream run located?
