Mapping My Runs

Recently I came across an interesting website called

This is a google maps "mash-up" allowing you to mark waypoints on a running route either following roads, satellite, or hybrid view.

An elevation graph is estimated from the route data. Obviously good for putting the hill climbs in perspective.

A shoe tracker lets you see how many kms you have done on a pair and when they should be replaced.

Perhaps the most useful part is the training log. Given a particular route and time data on speed, min/km pace, and calories burnt can be generated. I'll be using this going forward - in fact some of my runs can be found on-line here
