Before I go out and drop $50 on this software just to map out my running
routes, can anybody tell me what kind of detail it provides for Windsor,
Ontario, Canada?  And in general, would EVERY street be mapped for all
smallish to mid-sized cities across North America? And finally, (and I
apologize for having missed a discussion on this topic which took place here
recently), does anybody have any complaints about this software, or are you
generally pleased with it?

Thanks for any help,
Rick

On that same page is an interesting description of why heel-striking is bad.

Are there any other web sites to get this program?  I don't seem to be able
to download from this site.  http://www.geocities.com/qq0/download.html

Look at the suggestions on the site.  Geocities sucks.

I had to Left Click on the link while holding SHIFT to download it.  This
opens a new window and for some reason this enables you to download the
file.

It details Windsor equally as well as a quality road map
you would buy at a gas station.

Rick,

Start at the intersection of Lauzon Road and Riverside Drive, run west along
Riverside Drive until you reach Highway 3 next to the Ambassador Bridge.  You ran
6.9 miles.  According to Streets and Trips 2001.

I bought the program last week and there was a (U.S.) 20 dollar rebate coupon in
the package, along with the software.  Assuming the rebate eventually arrives, my
final cost will be 8 dollars and change.  I don't know if the rebate offer is good
in Canada.

Sam's Club.  Same company as Walmart but requires membership and sells stuff in
bulk.  

Here in San Diego, Streets and Trips 2001 was also being sold at Circuit City and
they also had a rebate.

I found Streets and Trips 2001 at CompUSA for $19.99 with a $20 rebate.
Uncle Sam still gets his cut but otherwise free (if the mail in rebate
arrives)

actually, for most runners, heel striking is the most efficient and healthy way
to run.  The question though is how far on the heel ... it seems the answer is
that the foot still needs to fall under the runner but the ankle rotates

Does this free program "routedigitzer" work for Macs? If not, does anyone know of
one that does?
