Do you run in a city (or anywhere in the USA) but have no idea how far you're actually going on your exact route? If you're like me you just assume it's a mile or so.
MapMyRun.com is a cool online tool that enables you to type in your starting address and map out your run from start, through every twist and turn, to finish. The whole thing is a little difficult to use but once you figure it out, it's great.
I found out that my usual run home from work is 1.83 miles and that my walk to the grocery store is about .68 miles (there and back).
Check it out! How far are you actually running (or walking)? Let me know below!
