We live in an information age which relishes “big data.” What exactly constitutes “big data” is in dispute, but it certainly means big business. An ever-growing number of consumer products and digital applications are here to help us document our every move, from a selfie with our breakfast to our REM sleep. “Basic” features of running watches now monitor mileage, pace, calories, elevation, and heart rate. Instant access to individualized coaching plans a nd leaderboards comparing you to your friends’ times on the same course are easy add-ons. Until recently, only every now and then did I come across a runner who kept a handwritten diary o r spreadsheet of their daily mileage and time spent running. (Mileage was usually determined by driv- i ng around in your car.) My growing skepticism of our pervasive “track everything” mentality peaked when my son came home with details for a digital application suggested b y his school that allows me to see what he has been doing during the day. I know, for example, that on Monday at 1:38 p.m. he was “chatty.” Tuesday, at 8:44 a.m., he was “on task.” Iwas taken aback to see his daily microbehaviors i n list and chart form. He’s only 8, but it felt like an invasion of his privacy. It reminded me of when he was in diapers at daycare and I would get a daily report of his dietary comings and goings. Then, I only had more questions: What was I s upposed to do with this information? Reprimand h im for being chatty and praise him for being on task? For each instance? What was the context of the chattiness? Most importantly, was he actually learning anything? Iunderstand the idea behind the app is to facili- t ate communication between teachers and parents, b ut I fail to see what this accomplishes that a phone call or email would not if the problem truly warranted my attention. Ishudder to think what a daily monitoring of my own activities would reveal: three cups of coffee, 20 m inutes chatting, two Twizzlers before 10 a.m. ... Reflecting on my reaction to my son’s microbe- havioral data, I realized my best personal records involve running. It begged the question, has more running data made me a better runner? Idon’t think so. I can’t say with any confidence that knowing my pace in a race has made me run faster. In fact, the more I thought about it, the more I started to worry that knowing my pace actually made me slower. L ast year I forgot my watch in a 50K and ran my fastest time. — Andrea Hickerson, The Fair Weather Runner b logger BEST OF OUR BLOGS CHARLIE NEIBERGALL/AP FILE PHOTO Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker’s fitness tracker is on his wrist in Glenwood, Iowa, in July.
