Great Idea People!

Alrighty, this one is going to be short and sweet.

I did my 17 miles long run this afternoon while it was quite toasty out, but not unbearably (or stupidly) so.  I was going through water quite a bit more than I usually do.  This led me to what I think is a quite brilliant idea…

Someone should make a running map thing like mapmyrun.com or runningmap.com that displays where there are water fountains or public hoses along the way.  I knew of two while I was running so I knew I was covered but I passed like 4 more along the way I didn’t know about that eased my dehydration issue even more.  This could help people plan their runs better without having to drive around looking for fountains or dropping off water bottle for themselves along the route.

Now, it occurred to me that this may already exist and I just don’t know about it, but if not someone should really make this happen!!  I don’t care at all who, but I’m thinking this could be a really helpful tool!!

Have you heard of anything like this before?  If so please let me know, I am super interested in it!

  1. I’ve never heard of anything like it, but it’s a great idea! Also maybe including public restrooms? (Especially for longer runs!)
