Hi! Pac Tom is my project to run the length of every street in Pittsburgh. Check out the rules. It's called Pac Tom because it's like a very slow version of Pacman without the ghosts or power pills, and my name is Tom. As I run I write updates of my progress, collect data, and make maps and graphics out of the routes I take.

Local fame is mine! Here's a writeup of the Pac Tom project in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: The man who will run all of Pittsburgh.

Pac Tom is coming along pretty well. I've long since finished the whole of Continental Pittsburgh (area between the two rivers) and the South is all done except for a single run that I will probably use to finish up on Mt. Washington. I've taken a big chunk out of the North Side, with several of the most distant neighborhoods completely done. I've slowed down a bit, partly because I got out of shape after a tough year, but mostly because I'm a little afraid of finishing now! I probably only have about 10 trips left, and after that I'm not sure what I'll do with myself. (I mean my feet. I have loads of projects as usual.)
