The Running

For those who wish to track and improve their long distance running, CoolRunnings is a useful website. In a brilliant use of Google Maps technology, Gmaps Pedometer allows the plotting of running routes complete with elevation mapping and rough calorie estimation. As with American food labels, a calorie here actually refers to a kilocalorie.
