  1. Back in the day when I used to lay out and certify race courses, the big new technology was “The Wheel,” a modified bike wheel with a handle and digital counter made by a local runner. It was finely balanced so you could guide it with a finger while running, and the bike wheel made it more adaptable than the smaller surveyor’s wheels they used for short distances.

    That didn’t stop paranoid bystanders from thinking I was a highways guy, since I ran with a can of paint to mark the pavement.

    These mapping tools are cool, but nothing beats making a training route yours like wheeling it by hand.
