now you can ! no you dont have to wake up early and go down to east coast to actually watch the distance i covered : ) that this cool Internet site that actually map my/your run for you
of cos the website name is mapmyrun.com
they help you measure the distance of the run and if you include the timing of the run, it will help you calculate the total calories burn and even the average pace of the run.
Pretty cool and easy to use.
Very motivating too! I actually covered more distance than my training schedule had plan out for me.
