“Run Forrest Run”… Run charts can take data over time and tell interesting stories. The chart below is a simple run chart that shows my weight in pounds from 2008 to 2011. I have lost about 50(ish) pounds since January 2008. My strategy has been the classic “eat less and move more”. The eating less part is always tough for me so I’ve adjusted the strategy to be “move more and eat decently.” To keep up the move more side, I have run in 7 organized races including a half-marathon over the last 2 years. In order to finish these races you need to keep a pretty rigorous training schedule. It’s been lots of fun and I still have a long way to go. I’m not looking for a medal by the way (other than the ones you get when you finish the races). I just thought using my marathon training/weight loss data (in pounds) would be a good way to remind people of the correct use of some simple charts.
