GMaps Pedometer is an fantastic way to track mileage (down to the millionth of a mile), but everyone knows about it already. It's old hat. Out with the chickens. Tired. I just found a fun new toy that uses its software - USATF's searchable list of user-submitted running routes. Some are a little on-the-nose (I can run from campus to picnic point?!?) and I wish you could narrow the search more (since there are 264 results for Madison), but it's cool to see routes that start from strangers' suburban front doors right next to loops of downtown. I entered my regular 10K route (with a starting spot that's not my actual front door) - track it down, vote me up, and help me get a gold rating!
Not a runner? Maybe you're a Soviet-era scale-model collector with an extra $3 million in your checking account.
Or, in bigger news, WTF just happend on Project Runway? WTF Jeffrey?!?
