21KM Apple Logo: A Runner’s Tribute to Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs’s announcement that he was stepping down as Apple Inc.’s CEO made waves in the news and in various blogs, which ran numerous stories and articles about his work ethics, the company that he co-founded, the 313 or so patents that are attributed or co-attributed to him, and, of course, about the man himself.

21km-apple-logoSteve Jobs has done a lot while he was at the helm of Apple. Aside from making Apple and iPods and iPhones more like a household name, he’s also managed to inspire a lot of people with his different brand of leadership. Jobs has been hailed as a visionary, and I believe, rightly so.

Someone who obviously agrees with me is Joseph Tame, a runner who wanted to do something special to pay tribute to Jobs. Armed with 2 iPhones and an app called RunKeeper, Tame ran 21 kilometers through central Tokyo to recreate a GPS path version of the well-known Apple logo.

In a blog post on his site, Tame talks of how Apple has changed his life and how grateful he was to Jobs:

It’s for this that I’d like to personally show my appreciation to Steve for his vision and leadership, which has made a direct positive impact upon my life. His work has also served to revolutionize the mobile phone industry, something that was desperately needed here more than anywhere. I’d like to wish Steve all the best, and hope that his health improves fast now he’s able to focus more on getting well again.
