Untangling running: designing for real-life runner experiences
Magazine article, 2015

Running has become a key fitness activity included in local and national health strategies, as it has low entry costs and is widely available. Training programs intended to help people start running are reported in the mainstream press, attracting interest from people intrigued by the sport's health and leisure benefits. Marketing campaigns have been launched to expand national runner communities and persuade more people to be part of the running experience. Many design efforts in human-computer interaction (HCI) have investigated how to design systems promoting a more active lifestyle.
