My dad started running well over a year ago, possibly almost two years ago and in that time he has run numberous 10Ks, a few half marathons and plenty more outside of actual races. This year, he has decided he wants to begin training for a marathon. So, in honor of him deciding to keep moving forward with something that he loves, and in honor of Fathers Day, I created this abstract composition.
The piece consists of every mile that he ran in a year. I took the GPS data from his Nike+ and copied it all to my computer. Then, I took screenshots of the hundreds of routes and began tracing over them. Finally, I organized them in a ridiculous cluster to give you the feeling that he ran a lot. Which he did. All together, the distance he ran this past year was 802 miles. If he can do that, he can easily run 26.2 miles in one go.
