Recommendations for an Android run-tracking app? Complication: no data plan, no GPS.

The above the fold basically says it all. I have a new model smartphone but no data plan, which means the GPS doesn't really work at all. I map all my runs in advance with Google Earth, so I have a pretty good estimate of how far I run, so I'm really mostly just looking for a timer app, where I can input the distance, press start, and then press stop when I'm done my run and have it keep a log of all my runs, allowing me to see my total distance per month, my average pace for various distances, etc. Any other features are just gravy.
It's pretty likely that I will get a data plan at some point in the future, so an app that can do all this stuff in non-GPS mode, but also has a GPS mode would really be perfect. I'm willing to shell out a few bucks to get the right thing.
