Monthly Recap

It is time to recap the monthly progress as we’re going into the Labor Day weekend, which marks the end of Training Week 4 (of the total of 10 weeks). It means now I have 6 weeks left to the October 12 race day.

I’ve been a MapMyRun member since August 2, 2007. And I’ve seen how these OS app and its companion apps, such as MapMyRide, MapMyHike, MapMyWalk, MapMyFitness, have made their progresses. In a better way, of course. Read More…
