Trail Runner and RaceBunny – A Perfect Complement for the GPS & Mac Enabled Runner Thumbnail

I think I've arrived late to the party but I've just stumbled upon a brilliant piece of software that can actually give Sporttracks a run for it's money.

World Naked Sprint-like-crazy-athon

I've just got back in from my run - it was a tough one. I'd meant to go out for a run with Shakti this morning but certain events, like the title of this blog post and then a rather large steak conspired to thwart me. I've been going stir crazy most of the day [...]
