On the Road and looking for a place to run?

I found this interesting website that I thought some musicians might enjoy.

It's called RUN.COM

As a fairly new site they have trails that you can run, when you are away from home. It also has a place where you can add trails for others to enjoy. I know some of you like to stay in shape ;) so I thought this might be a useful tool.

Try it, use it and let me know what you think and most of all don't forget to add your favorite running spot if it's not all ready there for others to enjoy :)

Cheers and Inspire :)
