Featured Website: Sport Tracks

Posted by Filed Under: Tools for Runners, Web Sites

Sport Tracks is a website for a handy tool to track your activities and more. It can be easily downloaded and installed on your PC. Besure to check the minimum requirements first. The site features a Demo Center, Downloads and a User Forum. Its all free but you can make a donation, if you like.

I downloaded and installed the program in a few minutes. What took longer was importing the data from my Garmin Forerunner 301. You can import from a variety of GPS tools or gpx files. The tool allows you to setup for more then one athlete. For each athlete you can view items such as the daily activity or even details about the Athlete.

In the Athlete view one can track reasons a workout is missed, weight, body fat, blood pressure and more. If you are really into details and analyzing why your workouts are good, bad or other some of these can be worth tracking.

When you first use the application, you can customize the setup. You have a choice between USA and Metric as well as colors for the background. There are color choices such as Inferno, Mossy, Daisy and more. I chose Daisy which is a nice pink theme. However once setup I could not find how to change settings. For example I chose USA but would now like to switch to Metric and can’t find where to do so. Oh well, I guess I will have to play with it some more.

Below is a screen shot of the Activity view. I like that it shows a map of where I ran.

Thanks go to my friend Mike of Love2Run Canada for this one. I discovered it while reading his blog.

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
