Runner Joseph Tame ran a half marathon in the shape of the Apple logo to pay tribute to Steve Jobs.
The departure of steve jobs has left many apple fans in tears, but this fan from tokyo took it to the next level by running 13 miles in a pattern resembling the apple logo.Using two iPhones and the Runkeeper app, Tame managed to run himself a giant Apple logo right through central Tokyo.
“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,” wrote Tame in a blog post. “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.”
The journey, which took Tame roughly two hours to complete, started off around the western side of Tokyo’s Imperial palace–to create the east side of the Apple logo, we note. He curved out the bottom of Apple’s apple through the Tokyo neighborhoods of Roppongi and Omotesando, eventually finishing up the westernmost point of the logo around Shinjuku. He ran part of the top of Apple’s logo before taking a small break to construct the leaf in the Kagurazaka, and then finished out his journey-turned-art around the Yasukuni Shrine.The “bite” in the apple curves around the Imperial Palace, which is the main residence of the emperor (and might be the most expensive square kilometer in the world)
