Add Your Own Running Odometer to Your Blog

SKA Runner Odometer V1
Capture
Last week I designed a running odometer for my blog and thought others might want to add one too.  It is very simple and is manually updated.  You can change the text plates to say what ever you want. And it has a transparent background to it will fit with anyone’s theme.

It is a very simple interface, after finishing your run just edit the gadget and change your miles or kilometers.  Let me know what other features you want to see; I already have a few ideas in the works.  AND let me know if you use it, I will post a list of sites that have one.  Click Below for Instructions.

Adding the SKArunner gadget is easy.
