Steve, Cathy, and Nicholas -- Steve's running log (created 2011-09-24)

I have been mentioning my runs fairly regularly on this site. It is probably of limited interest to most of you, but it helps me stay motivated to show the geographic track of my runs and the times and distances. So I thought I'd created a log that I would regularly update. I started keeping this log in August 2011 when I got a GPS app for my iPhone. The log entries are broken up by year.

I make frequent reference to "No Brake" hill, a steep hill on Mission Road that is part of almost all of my local runs. I have a page with pictures along this hill, which is my nemesis on many of these runs, as the uphill segment usually appears near the end of my runs.

When I run from home, I tend to have a few routes that I repeat, partly because there are only so many places that I can run, and partly so I can compare results over time. I have a brief description of each route and a small animation that traces out the routes. Here are the routes that I have run three or more times.

On of the fun things about the GPS app is seeing maps of runs when I travel. Here are all the runs from outside the Kansas City area.
