The resignation of Steve Jobs came as a shock to many. Now to honor the big man himself, a media producer by the name of Joseph Tame ran a total of 21km/ 13miles to create the Apple logo. Check the out the picture below of the Apple created by Joseph Tame.
As you can see from the above picture the Apple logo has been created by running 21km/13 miles and used a GPS to “connect the dots” to draw the Apple logo.
“To pay his tribute to Steve Jobs, Joseph Tame, a media producer and a marathon runner from Tokyo, ran 21 kms in 2 hours — starting from the western side of the Imperial Palace, across to Roppongi, through Omotesando, then up to Shinjuku. The leaf is in Kagurazaka, and the start/finish point just by the entrance to Yasukuni Shrine. The route, when mapped, shows the famous Apple logo in the center of Tokyo.”

I’ve been meaning to run an Apple for a few months now, but was having a hard time finding the route (these things have to be done so as to take advantage of natural shapes/road patterns in the city).
However, with Steve stepping down as CEO it seemed it would make a fitting tribute to him and his time heading the company, so I spent a few hours with Google maps locating/ tracing this route, and then a couple more running it. A lot of fun, and great to see it being so well received.
This is a cool way to honor Steve Jobs. Don’t you think so?
