Exclamation Discovery!

Last night I came across MapMyRun.com on the web, and this morning I used it to plot two of my lunch-hour walking routes (I get about a mile and a half for the round trip on each of them). Anybody else use it?

I do! I like to take my dog on long works as a form of bonus exercise. We'll walk together for an hour or more and when we get home, I map the walk on mapmyrun and figure out how far we went and how many cals I burned. It's very cool! I use mapmyride to plot bike rides, too.

That's a great site, beats driving around in the car checking distance.

I use GMaps Pedometer, but it sounds like a similar thing.

I started when I thought a run was a LOT shorter than it actually was, and there were no shortcuts...now I map before I leave.
