Dear Google:

Hey Google, you continue to amaze me on a daily basis with your constant innovations.
I love Google Maps, and use it to map out my running mileage after a long jog. The tricky part is, that I have to map each mile-marker from intersection to intersection, then add up the mileage.
I think it would be great if after mapping out a run from point A to point B, lets say, that's a 10 mile run, I could create mile markers, so I know when I've ran 1 mile, or 5 miles, etc. OR, I could simply pull up a map of my area, and post a pin at one location, then post another pin at another location - and Google Maps infinite wisdom, would tell me how long of a distance that is.

Just an idea, if you implement it, throw some Google Snacks my way.
