Hi all. Just a quick post because I really want to share this with you all. This is extremely cool and is something I have wanted for YEARS!
Have you ever wondered “how far did I run“? Do you have a route that you love to run, but never knew how far it actually was? Well, thanks to this incredible Google Maps mashup you finally can!
And best of all – it is free! Absolutely FREE!
All you do is:
- Find where you want to start with the ‘Jump To’ search box
- Zoom appropriately as you would normally with gmaps
- Click ‘Start Recording’
- Then double click each point on the route
It gives you Total Distance, Mile Markers and Calories Burned!
This is just great, and I have already been playing around with it for hours finding out how far it is from my house to my ferry wharf, from my office to my favourite salad bar, from my house to my favourite cafe, from my house to my friends house…oh and of course how long my favourite running routes are!!!
Now I always knew that something good would come out of reading Matt Cutts’ blog…
