My workout regimen consists of running, lifting, and the occasional game of tennis. I’m good about sticking to a routine, and I’m glad I do, but I don’t really keep track of how far I run or the routes I take.
I’ve always been curious about my runs, though. How far do I run? What’s the elevation change? Are there other interesting runs in the same area?
Friends at work recently turned me onto some great mashup sites that answer these exact questions. I first tried MapMyRun. Within minutes, I’d mapped out a few of my regular routes. MapMyRun gave me the distance, elevation, calorie estimate, and other statistics. It also showed me nearby runs that other people had posted.
