Personal Technology: Real Time Progress Reports

A relative ran in the San Francisco Marathon last weekend and paid a grand sum of $1 to have automatic text messages update his progress. Think about that: location, time of day, time in race, and even pace can be reported.

(He told me afterward that he wished he had included reports to his own cell phone.)
