Cool or Depressing?

Nike has built a 200-meter track – shaped like a shoe, of course – in Manila that is surrounded by LED lights and a wall upon which an avatar of your previous lap is projected. You can then race against yourself, or at least yourself’s last lap.

It might bring a momentary sense of accomplishment to beat your last lap, but since that becomes your new benchmark, you’re doomed to chasing yourself until you inevitably watch your past self leave you in the dust. For someone my age, that’s too gloomy a metaphor for my actual running history.
