Runners & Bikers: Let's Get Together In Blue Zone Spirit

Posted Tuesday, August 21, 2012, at 10:45 PM

I like to run and bike. So do a lot of citizens in and around Spencer.

An "app" I use when I run or bike is "mapmyrun". It tells me how fast (OK---how slow) I am running or biking and then maps the route taken. It is a pretty cool app and free but I am not trying to promote it. I did, however, use it to search for subscribers near Spencer, Iowa, and found quite a few. So I sent everybody a note/"friend request" saying:

"I just did a search of folks on map my run near Spencer, Iowa and several folks appeared including yourself. I think it would be cool to start some biking/running groups. I will blog about it on the Daily Reporter Blog I do.....check it out:


So here is the blog....

You runners & bikers out there, if you are interested in meeting or even forming an informal group (we could meet periodically for a bike ride or run) post a comment or shoot me an email.

Another great app that I love is Endomondo Pro. It also tracks your runs, walks, cycling, etc, etc... I love trying to beat friends' times across the country. Way to stay connected with a little healthy competition. :) You can also create GPS routes, and you can try to beat your own route times. Lot's of bells and whistles, even a voice coach, and your friends can cheer you on during your run/ride too.
