Working on Adding Shoe Milage Feature

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

You might have noticed the pick shoe option when saving a run recently. Soon you’ll be able to add your running shoes to your account and keep track of the millage you run on each of your shoes. We hope to also add a feature that will alert you know once it’s time to get a new pair of shoes based on the amount of millage you’ve run in them. And possible display some shoe similar to yours that you can purchase from shoe companies online.

We’ll send out another newsletter once we get this finished but I think it will make using our running log more effective and make training and running even easier. Plus we hope to help prevent injuries by having the shoe alert feature, because commonly most injuries are from improper or worn out shoes.

Let us know what you think, I know a quite a few of you had suggested we add this feature to our site. So we hope to have it up and running for you soon!

New Design Is Now Live!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Our new design is now live! We’ve expanded on a few features on the site including a fresh looking design, directory for mapped runs, better directory for races, able to comment on races and mapped runs, added this blog, re-developed the coach’s account, corrected running log to allow any amount of time for a run, and added a tell-a-friend form (so you can easily and quickly tell your friends about out website).

Here is an overview of the new (shared) mapped runs directory. To make it easier to view mapped runs, we’ve provide a directory that can be navigated through. You can view by location, milage, and user. As well we’ve added a search feature, ability to post comments on runs, and some ways for you to share the mapped run with others. To share runs with other people we’ve added share links to facebook, myspace, windows live, and digg.

And for those doing the actual mapping of running routes we’ve added a description feature so you can add a description to the run. Your description will show up on the run’s web page.

In the past we’ve had some issues with the coach’s account working. We have now corrected those issues and re-developed and designed the look of the coach’s account. It’s now much easier to add and remove athletes from an account and for athlete to accept or decline a coach.

And we’re not stopping there! We’ll going be making more developments to the site so if you have any suggestions or wishes just let us know.
