Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to discover new music. I'm a big fan of pandora, but I've made a recent discovery that is cool in a different way. It's called Musicovery. Unlike pandora, where you discover new music based on bands or songs you recommend to it, Musicovery allows you to listen to music based on mood and genre, year and style. Just another way to make discovering new music easy.
Today I discovered a fabulous little tool called Walk Jog Run. It's a webiste that allows you to type in your zipcode and locate walking/jogging/running routes in your area. Routes are sorted according to distance and are displayed on... a google map! It even calculates the estimated time it will take you to run the mapped distance (you put in your estimated speed) AND tells you how many calories you will burn based on weight and age. You can create an account to keep track of all of your routes and runs. This will make training for my half-marathon a lot easier. If only it would merge with nikerunning.com, life would be perfect.
