Developer Personal Statement:

“I had been running on a regular basis on my lunch break down at some athletic fields close to where I work creating a perimeter run around 3 or 4 soccer and baseball fields. I had been keeping track of my time, and thought I was running at a pretty good pace, but had no idea how far I was running for each lap. I downloaded a map distance app, and it took me FOREVER to plot all the points using some awkward cross hair device to finally come up with a distance. I downloaded 2 others, one of which also used the cross hair and one which was touch, but poorly implemented. I was left unsatisfied and wanted something quicker and easier to use. I decided I could do better and implemented my… Oh, and by the way, I was disappointed to find out, that I was running MUCH slower than I thought. Oh well."
