Pace off your next walk, run or ride on your computer screen with this Google Maps pedometer

This Gmaps hack is so cool
. Just zoom in on any location and then click off the segments of your desired route with a mouse. The software automatically tallies your mileage. I tried it by clicking the four corners of Madison’s Capitol Square, the site of the Dane County Farmers’ Market. With 300 vendors, it’s the largest producers-only market in the country -- and a great place for a Saturday morning stroll of exactly 0.55 miles, according to the Gmaps pedometer. Thanks to Atrios, who mentioned it when posting about a recent run.
