Join me on my morning jog

As of today, I'm offering Mumblers the opportunity to join me on my morning jog. Yes, you too can come to Komozawa Koen, enjoy the sights of the running track, go faster, go slower, go uphill, go downhill ...and all without breaking a sweat. Courtesy of (what else but) the iPhone.

Courtesy of this amazing gadget and a new app, my runs (that's different from 'the runs'...) are now added to the social networking site EveryTrail. If I take any photos along my route, they are magically uploaded to the Google map in the correct location - I really don't have to do much to create the little show other than press 'Start' when I leave the house and 'Stop' when I get home (and 'Take Photo' when I want to).

This also shows speed, altitude, and the amount of sweat soaking my T-shirt.

This morning I was out of the house by 7am, inspired by *Twinkle* who had left at 6.15am to attend a (free) morning business seminar run by the owner of a famous izakaya (Japanese bar) in Shibuya.

It was a great run, really enjoyed it!

Time for a quick shower, shave, bento (packed lunch) making ...then work!

That is just too amazing. I'm glad the developers are using the full potential of this handy device.

And thanks for being an awesome virtual jogging partner, it was fun!

And I lost some virtual weight too! Woo!
