Huntington Woods runners, go west.

I did a run few days ago and RunKeeper recorded me crossing 696. Twice. The GPS was accurate. Here is the map:

The trick is that when the Feds built 696 they added two elevated parks to compensate Oak Park for land lost to the highway.

My advice to Huntington Woods runners, go west.

Inspired to run by a Runkeeper bug

One thing I hate about RunKeeper is how at the beginning of the month you get that down arrow that says "Lowest"

I just had one day, of coarse I'm not going to be over my worst month yet. And the more consistant you are the longer it takes to shed that arrow. My worst month is last June, so my lowest is 19 miles. But that it going to scroll off the page next month and then I'll have to clock 44 miles before getting rid of that Albatross.
