High Tech Info for Low Tech Travel
The Houston Marathon is occurring as I type, and HP has a bunch of cool tools to help spectators track their runners. So from the comfort of my home, I can see that my trainer (the green dot) is kicking @$$ (she reached mile 18 just while I was cropping the screen shot and typing this), my cousin (the yellow dot--now at mile 13) decided to run the full marathon instead of the half like she said yesterday, and my co-worker (the blue dot) appears to have stalled at mile 9 of the half. He's been having knee issues, so I hope he's just tired and not hurt.
Update: Hmm, there must be something I'm not understanding, because now the "Live Split Updates" page is showing Cousin and Coworker as finished, but the Map page still shows their dots in the middle of their respective courses.
Update 2: Okay, I think I get it. Cousin ran a half-marathon but on the full marathon course (her last checkpoint is at mile 13). Coworker just stopped early :-(
