Create Running Routes With Google Maps


Gmap Pedometer is a site that uses Google Maps to let you record distances between two or more places. You can create routes for your running, see how many calories you're going to burn and save the route for further referencing. The author of the site explains: "As a runner training for a marathon for the first time, I found myself wishing I had an easy way to know the exact distance a certain course is, without having to drag a GPS or pedometer around on my runs." It's always a good idea to get some exercise at least once in a while, if not every day. And you can use the new iPod Nike shoes.

  1. There is actually a better site, favoriterun.com, that allows you to save routes and even create a log.

  2. Well, I was wrong because this allows you to save routes as well, just in a different manner. But I still like favoriterun.com better because of the running log feature and having all your saved routes listed in your account.

  3. I've just started using another site like this http://www.map-runner.com you can plot your routes like gmaps pedometer but theres also a social community aspect to the site which is a nice addition. It's got a nice intuitive layout as well, very easy to use.
