Getting my run on.

Map My Run!

A friend, Sara, commented on another friend, Robyn’s, blog and in the process gave me a cool new little website tool! Have you heard of Map My Run? I’ve always used Gmap-pedometer to map out running routes around my neighborhood. The only problem is I could never save the routes. Map My Run seems to use the same gmap-pedometer strategy but allows you to save the course, annotate the course with info (steep hill, stoplight, beware of dog, etc). Plus, you can use it as a training log if you want and record your performance on each route you save. I already have three routes saved to my profile – my 3.2, 4, and 5 miles routes. I’m going to add another 5 mile route today, the one with the massive, steep hill, and then see if I can map out a 6 mile course too. I don’t want to have to drive in order to run. I want to be able to run straight from my house. I also only want to run on paved paths, not cement sidewalks. Since I know where those trails are around my house, I can create routes and save them, to complete my training program! Another cool features is you can search public routes to find one that works for you! I put in my zip code and came up with over 100 routes ranging from 1 mile to 11 miles. Now, not all are in my section of town but it’s still cool there was that many! I’m wondering if I could even use this tool to find a running partner? Anyway, I think it’s cool. Check it out!

And if you want to see my runs, go to the site and search my zip code and my name and you’ll find mine!
