I do the same thing on the mountain bike. I like that it gives your ride / jog a purpose and you are going to see new things every time. And after a while it turns into a puzzle, because you have to find the few track you have not mapped yet.
My blog post about it from last year: http://christof.damian.net/2009/09/new-hobby-openstreetmapping.html

Such a nice cleaner of own head and if is it in Norway, even better effect. Running gets out wasted energy, stress and this amazing sport is drifting out substance called endorfin, something like feeling of pleasure :)
just enjoy! But take a rest, go to sauna and swim in the fjord also :)
Well, I did map allmost all of my hometown (Lessines) while jogging thru every street, a lot of wich where unknow to me so far …
It does give a goal to the exercice !µ
And it took me almost a year to complete.
Thank you for mapping here in Klæbu! :-)
I am impressed! Yesterday I ran (or rather ascended) 9 km following first a road and then track all the way up to a summer farm area. A little to much for my legs it seems today. Hopefully i wont be the only one doing this though, so I’m hoping it will take less than a year. We’ll see :)
Hi, i’m doing Map joging for 8 month now. I Map the “Schnaittachtal”. It go me going through the long Winter. I Finished the Hamburg Marathon in 3:29 because of so man detours while Mapping. My Area is very well mapped (almost each path) where I am able to reach within my training. I tag now offical hiking tours and POI.
How you organize your jog recordings?
I’m waiting for my sportwrist so I can wrap my smartphone (android) round my lower arm.
Will use OSM-Tracker to record und Maverick for orientation.
Hope it’s gonna work out.
I just record with my Holux m-241 GPS logger which fits nicely in my hand, extract it with gpsbabel, prepare for upload with viking and edit the map with potlatch. Not a very good process, espescially because gpsbabel doesn’t extract the track very well, so every startpoint of each track is displaced and all tracks are merged into one track.
I’ve tried OSMTracker for Android on my Samsung, but it’s very crude, and also need post-processing and uploading.
