Why I Love Daily Mile

If you love to run, cycle, swim, lift weights, or be active in some other way and you haven’t heard of Daily Mile yet, you need to get familiar ASAP!

Daily Mile is an awesome social networking site, sort of like Facebook for active people. It’s a place where you can share your workouts and training and meet other people who care about the same things that you do. You can become “friends” with others, send motivation to them and comment on their workouts, notes, and photos. It’s a great way to find active people in your area and follow people that are training for the same races that you are. It’s basically awesome!

One of my favorite parts of Daily Mile is the awesome statistics and graphs they create for you.

You can look at your training by days (above), weeks, or months (below).

You can look at your workouts in terms of distance, pace, or time (below).

Or you can look at your top fastest, farthest, most intense, and most talkative workouts.

It even tells you your lifetime stats – including how far you’ve run around the world, how many donuts you have burned, and how many TVs you have powered! Too cool!

When you share your daily workout people can comment on it and send you motivation.

Every day there is a new Daily Mission, which is a question or prompt that you can answer. It’s a great way to learn more about your Daily Mile buddies and share more about yourself.

There is a forum where you can ask and answer questions. Here is one of the questions I posted before and 11 people responded to it. It’s great to get support from other knowledgeable people!

You also get an awesome weekly email that recaps your training that week. It always makes me feel very accomplished and proud!

Other features include free challenges you can sign up for,

groups you can join,

and a route mapper that allows you to create your own routes and search for others that Daily Mile members have created.

So what are you waiting for? Get on Daily Mile and start sharing your hard work! And add me as a friend too 🙂
