If you’re anything like me, you make an effort to exercise regularly. I realize the benefits physically and emotionally after a good run—I simply feel better. For a long time, I believed I didn’t need anything to track my performance. Just deciding to run was good enough for me. But what if I was wrong? Maybe I wasn’t burning as many calories as I thought.
