Website Of The Day: Gmaps-Pedometer.com

It looks like I am just another one of millions of Americans that thinks I am getting a lot more physical exercise than I really am. Gmaps Pedometer allows you to record your daily run, the walk to Starbucks or your walk to your favorite bookstore on the Google map and then gives you the total distance, mile markers and even a calorie counter breakdown based on your weight.

I learned my favorite running path along the Marina Green in San Francisco is 1.24 miles (there and back) and burns 108 calories at my body weight, whereas my walk to the bus stop from the office is 0.11 miles and burns 10 calories (it seems like so much longer when I'm lugging my purse!)

FitSugar says we should all be taking 6,000 steps a day for health and 10,000 for weight-loss...so can I call myself a healthy geek if I start plotting out all my major activity?

I've totally been using this to map my walks for my training for the Breast Cancer 3Day. One of the most useful things on the interwebs.
