I was going to write about how tomorrow is a great day to get back into a good workout routine because it’s the first of the month and a Monday. I’m excited about doing that because I’ve let myself go for the ENTIRE month of July and I feel like crap.  But……

I went to log-in to MapMyRide.com tonight. Up pops a window that says they “need some more information” from me, like birthday and whether I’m male or female. I understand the marketing side of a free site, but I’m not giving up that information when they didn’t need it before. So I go over to MapMyRun.com, hoping that somehow that new requirement isn’t there, too, but no luck. So I found their survey and told them I’m no longer using the site until they drop that requirement for additional personal information.  I’ll just use Google Earth or something until that happens. Til then, I can’t share a route easily in the blog. But I’m drawing a line on personal information being on everyone’s server. Maybe I’ll change my mind down the road, but for now I think it’s too much.
