Bet you didn’t know that you could draw while you ran, did you? Here’s a new twist to keep your running game interesting: By using the GPS feature in your phone, you can create drawings, with your body’s path as the pencil.

The FigureRunning app lets you turn your jog into a picture. Simply fire up the app, plot your route through the neighborhood (or wherever you like to run), and as you run it, the app traces your path and turns the resulting image into a picture that you can easily share with your fellow fitness friends (or your couch potato buddies) on Twitter or Facebook!

“Everybody loves playing outside. FigureRunning is a new sport that encourages you to get creative, go outside and discover new places while running and getting fit. The competition is not about your running speed or distance, it’s all about drawing. Become a master the art of FigureRunning. Do it when and wherever you want and be sure to share your art with your friends. The world is our canvas and you are the pencil!” – FigureRunning

Grab the FigureRunning app, strap on your favorite running shoes, and start making art from your runs. And if you turn out a masterpiece, send it to FigureRunning and you could be featured in the FigureRuns of the Week gallery!
