Best. Runner. Hack. Ever.

I am so glad Marshall stopped by. Not only is he eminently rational, but his blog pointed me towards The Google Maps Pedometer - a truly useful hack of Google maps that lets you calculate the distance of any route you run just by clicking waypoints on the map. I'll be using this every weekend - thanks, Marshall, for the heads up! Wish this was available for MapPoint ...

great hack, especially now that my forerunner took a dump again.

What? You're not using MapPoint? For shame! Just kidding - this is pretty neat. I was hoping that the app would trace your route as you added points, but you can't have everything, huh? Stacy will love this, as we have spent lots of time trying to use MapPoint's distance measure tool to figure out distances around our neighborhood.

Nice find!

Hm, the only issue I'm having is that it's forcing me to run on water. ;-)
