Since I got my Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS receiver in 2011, it has been recording thousands of waypoints from my runs. And like most runners, I have a few routes that I run most of the time, so when I view the map of a run in Garmin’s Training Center software, most look pretty much them same. Every now and then, however, I add some variation, resulting in more interesting pictures.
Over the course of a few months, I ran for a total of about three hours, expending about 3000 kcal (according to the software; no idea how accurate that estimate is) to create the raw GPS data for these images.
With the GPS data loaded into the software, I took a screenshot of each run as it was mapped. I then removed all street labels from the map, leaving just the image of the waypoints. Next, I aligned all images such that the first waypoint was at the same location in each one. Finally, I cropped them all to the same size and arranged the nine most interesting shapes in the nice 3×3 matrix you see below.
After Korbach and Dresden, Paris was the final city where our drama group was showing our production of [meˈliʎa]. So in November, I got to ride along in a transporter with our equipment for the eight hour drive to our partner school in Savigny-sur-Orge.
The last time I was in Paris, I went there by train. Now, entering the city by car during rush-hour I had an opportunity to see the near infinite expanse of suburbs that make up the Paris metropolitan area. These clusters of high-rise apartment buildings, with high-ways cutting through seemed a bit dystopian.
Since only half a day was allocated for setting up and showing the play, there was plenty of time for a trip to Versailles.

One night our host took us on a tour of the city center.
We also went to the roof-top terrace at the Galeries Lafayette where the following pictures where taken.
I’ll save some of the more touristy pictures for part 2 (coming soon).
