Skating Tracker

16 January 02017 (9 months ago)a few seconds of your time

Most of the folks I run with already use GPS tools and Strava to keep track of their runs (there are still a few stubborn holdouts!) and seeing our routes mapped out online afterwards is always a bit rewarding.

We went down to Hawrelak pond for a skate on Sunday and I decided to put my GPS watch on and press record. The result was a little over six and a half klicks of ice time over about 45 minutes. Much of that was lumbering around with Claire, but I did a few laps too. And I even tried to write my name in giant GPS letters in the middle of the rink.

The best part was that I wasn’t even alone. Shortly after uploading someone gave me a thumbs up on my activity (one of the social “features” of Strava) and when I looked at his profile, sure enough he had been out on the ice too, doing laps and had passed me four or five times.

But he didn’t write his name on the ice.
