This London Marathon runner has a novel way of raising awareness using her Garmin Forerunner

During the past 20 years, we've come up with some very creative uses for Garmin's GPS technology – tracking hunting dogs, measuring golf shots, racing bikes professionally – but Runner's World has introduced us to someone that deserves a pat on the back. If you can catch her.

Jenny Rice, a student at Kingston University contacted Runner's World: with this email

"Hello, I produced this short movie as part of my Graphic Design course at Kingston University. I used a Garmin Forerunner 205 to map my run to spell out a message that would raise awareness of my London Marathon fundraising."

Essentially, she ran for more than an hour in carefully planned patterns to spell out her charitable plea. It's like those old creative exercises in which you're not allowed to take the pen off the paper. Take a look at the video and try it for yourself by downloading your data to or Garmin Connect. It won't be easy, but you'll get a good workout regardless.
