I saw that - it seems rather 'downtown' centric, doesn't it ?
There are a lot of folks running in High Park, along the Goodman Trail, in the Beaches, up the Don - this map doesn't seem to indicate that...?

There's a good point in the comments on the BlogTO post - the routes of major marathons (the commenter notes this re the NYC map) skew the results somewhat.
PR's so far: 5K 27:15, 10K 55:25, 21.1K 2:10:53, 42.2K 5:21:27
Upcoming: Toronto Women's 5k in May, STWM Half in October

I saw this on another website. Does anyone know if there is one for Ottawa or if there is a way to create your own map? I saw some info about how to do it with GPS track files but I couldn't understand it enough to actually do it, LOL.

On strava you can see your own "heat map" which sort of does that.
