One of the best things you can do when going for a walk, run or bike ride is to know both where you’re going, and how far the route is. Even smaller details like where the mile markers are can be really helpful! In the past, I’ve done things like drive the route in my car, or bike, or even walk the route with a hand-held measuring roller.
Thanks to Google and a few great web sites you no longer have to do that. Check out http://www.favoriterun.com. Membership is free, and with it, you can map any route of any run, walk, or bike-ride you’d like, save it, and then have it for future reference.
Now get out there and go for a run – even if its just around the block!
