    Ok so here's the deal guys and gals, I am trying to have my phone assist me with my running. There are plenty of apps that will track my run via gps if I bring my phone on the run with me, but I don't wanna do that.

    I want to be able to map a course out, enter how long it took me, save the map and even share it with friends. Ideally the app would have the gps running features I mentioned above just on case I ever do start bringing my phone with me.

    Here is an example of what I mean in website form (unfortunately they make a sweet app for the iphone but their android version is pretty awful right now.

    I recommend RunKeeper - allows manual entry as you mention above and integrates w/ Facebook/twitter. Lots of DX reviewers said they had problems integrating w facebook but I guess they are just stupid because it worked fine for me (Droid X)

    Again, I appreciate the suggestion but I already tried that one out. I'm sure it does everything you say, but the functionality that I need is to map out a running course ahead of time, and get all the stats on it. I'll refer you to mapmyrun.com for an example of what I want in app form.

    My Tracks is just another app that records your course as you run with your phone. I don't want my phone with me, but I do want it to tell me where I can run from any given destination I decide to start from.
