“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.”
~ Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder
Not sure if running is a common choice of an everyday commuting method, but maybe it should be! With showering facilities on the campus, it’s definitely doable. We’d love to hear from those who instead of walking, cycling or rollerblading actually jog to school or work!
Here’s a useful tool for mapping your running routes: http://www.runningmap.com. It gives you an option of creating your own account which then helps you keep track of your workouts.
And, to give you some incentive, here’s a calorie counter that shows you how much you burn per workout!
