Inspired by Garrett Miller's (relatively) recent blog post, Mapping Moves, I decided to do something else with all my NikePlus data and create a map of my runs. Unfortunately for me, the Nike data is more difficult to liberate than from other sources. Fortunately for me, and anyone else trying to do this, there are some pre-existing tools to solve this issue.
I'm taking a quick break from my KenPom data visualization work this week (though I have made some updates; work in progress on the projects page) to talk about another project I've been working on. I'm an avid runner and have an upcoming race where I'm a little worried about the elevation changes so I thought bringing in some programming could help.
