How to Track your Barefoot Mileage with Android App

Phones phones phones? They’re magnificent. But finding apps to keep you fit is another story.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Where can i get android apps for running or physical training?” because you’re specifically and only interested in apps of android.

Here is “how do you get apps for android”.

My wife turned me onto this FREE android app (they have an iPhone app as well). It’s the only barefoot running app you’ll ever need:


The smart-phone app allows you to instantly track, measure, and improve your fitness.  You can

  • View your GPS location on a live Map
  • Customize Interval Workouts
  • Use the App on Treadmill & Other Cardio Equipment
  • Discover your Mileage & Pace
  • Measure Calories Burned

My wife has always been concerned about her running location being public. Run Keeper allows her to track her mileage and time keep her routes PRIVATE. She had issues with privacy and creepy people viewing her routes on Daily Mile.

For those who want to share their routes and routines with others on Run Keeper, there is a “social” feature. You can join a “street team” and even find new friends by browsing through local users.

This app is perfect for long run with barefoot running sandals.

How to Use Google Maps to Plot Running Routes

It’s easier just use a free smart-phone app called RunKeepr. But for historical reference, I’ll leave the info about Google Maps intact. It’s also worth knowing that Google Maps tends to UNDER ESTIMATE¬†MILEAGE. I thought I was running 3 miles, but my GPS showed that I was actually running 4!
(BTW, if you’re going to run with barefoot shoes, these Invisible Shoes are hard to beat.)

You don’t need to use a fancy, custom running route APP to plot your course and get your mileage. Google has done all the hard work for you. All you have to do is learn a little about how to create custom maps. It’s easier than you think. Plus, you can add images and share your routes with other barefoot runners:

Step By Step:

Use Google Maps to Plot Running Route

First Make Sure you Enter Your Start Address

Use the “My Maps” Link

Click the “Create New Map” Link

Enter a Snappy Name for Route and write a clever description of it. Also decide whether you want the route to be public or private.

If you entered your start address the map should be at your start location. Use the LINE TOOL to DRAW YOUR ROUTE. The LINE TOOL is BEST because it DOESN’T LIMIT YOU TO STREETS. The LINE TOOL also CALCULATES DISTANCE.

Hit “Save”. You’re done. Not too bad was it?

If none of that made sense, don’t worry. This video will show everything you need to know:
