Daily Mile

I have been running pretty much every day. I really want to improve my running (I was a great runner in high school) so I signed up at I love it! I can map my route (so I don't have to worry about "runtastic" freezing up my phone) and I can add notes to the run which is nice to keep track of how I run in which shoes and in the high humidity and heat versus the cool of spring or fall.

According to the route I mapped and my time, I burn about 650 calories on my run, which is really nice. It's more than I had anticipated (I always guesstimate low, just in case) but I also wonder if I am burning a little more because it has been so hot and humid lately.
Also it tracks each weeks progress and gives me overall numbers per week which is great.
I am looking forward to running on the beach while we are on vacation. It's on the east coast and I can't think of anything better than running during the sunrise.

I hope you all are having a great day! Let's have a great week together!


  1. I'm not a runner, but running at sunrise sounds like a dream. I would totally do it. Write about it when you do kay.

  2. Great run! I need to check out that website.

  3. Great job with the running! I wish I had that motivation. I need to keep up with my running but I always slack on it!
