I don’t know if anyone knows about this but there is an app/website called map my run. I get tired of all the usual pathways of running and the same scenery. I can catch myself in wondering whether my run is almost over or checkpoints to see if I’m almost done. I really hate doing that! This app/website is a great way to change this up! You can see trails in your area and see how long they are. This way you can see which ones are best for you and your needs.
Another app that is great is Nike+. You can connect with your friends on Facebook and compete against them weekly! I like the competition and bragging rights to know “I beat you this week!” It’s almost as if you are running with your friends even if they live far away.
Check them out and let me know what you think! Personally I love exploring new things so if you find an awesome trail, send me some pictures or some new ideas to try to post on my blog!
