Whoa baby. My wheels were spinning on this one!
This was on base, for the monthly wing run. The problem with a time like this is that it is only impressive to me. Half the population of the base passed me, so I felt like a turtle. (BTW, isn't "turtle" the cutest word in the English language?)
Here are a few links that I use when I calculate my time/distances:
Cool Running Pace Calculator: www.coolrunning.com/engi
You can enter two of the three arguments (pace, time, distance), and it will calculate the missing value. In this case, I entered time (00:28:00) and distance (3.09 miles), and it calculated my pace as 9:03min/mile.
Gmap Pedometer: www.gmap-pedomete
Now it can automatically calculate routes for runners or bicyclists. And it can tell you how many calories you burned.
