What kind of crazy credit card world are we living in when you can just put the wrong address down and all is fine?
At @roguerunning we still rely on printed paper maps and directions. Not easy on rainy days.
 
Maybe someone in the #tech industry will hear my pleas and decide to disrupt the old paper route system. #running
I know you can do walking directions on most map apps but those don't work because they pick shortest route. Not the same as a running route
Has this been invented yet? Create a running route & sync to your phone so u can hear turn by turn directions via your headphone. #running
