A Portland runner has gone to the Dark Side via his Nike+ running app. 

Gene Lu is creating characters from Star Wars through the GPS tracking feature in the app. So far, he’s drawn Darth Vader, a Storm Trooper, TIE fighter, and an AT-AT. Lu posted the photos to Instagram along with links to the routes so other runners can recreate them.

GPS tracking running apps like Nike+ are amazing for runners who want to get creative with their routes. Previously, people have used the apps to document very creative, and often NSFW, images.
