Useful Discovery

Yesterday I was prepared to spend $30 at The Running Room

on a pedometer that would tell me how far I had walked, but I didn't have $30 on me, so I put it off to today. When I got home, I had an e-mail from The Running Room that included maps of a 5k run and a 10k run here in Nanaimo. They were done on Google's pedometer site, which I hadn't known existed. Whew. Saved me $30, they did. I signed up for the site, and this morning I did a 3.51 mile (5.616 km) walk in my own neighbourhood. 8,762 steps. I've already mapped tomorrow's 4.11 mile walk. This is going to be very useful indeed. I will spend the $30 on something else from The Running Room.

Charlie's going to be racing again this weekend - check it out on his blog. The link is over on the right.
