What's the best running app?

I just got a new iPhone. I used to have an adroid and had a favorite running app. Unfortunately, that app is not available for the iPhone. So, MeFite runners, what works for you? I'd like something what won't seize up or shut down in the middle of a run, that will let me listen to music or a podcast, and that will track my runs for me. If possible, I would also like an app that lets me record cross-country skiing and time on the elliptical machine (my winter and non-running day activities). Thanks.

Now that WeEndure is shutting down...

Now that WeEndure is going away, I need somewhere to track my exercise. There are a number of places that have biking and running, but not swimming. I'd prefer simpler to the more complex sites like MapMyRun (which, again, doesn't do swimming, from what I can see). I have seen this and wondered what things are out there, four years later. Bonus: a place that I can dump all my WeEndure data into so I hit the ground running. [more inside]

What is this perpetual bruise-like pain on my shin?

This is an issue that I've been aware of for years, but have never investigated it with a doctor because it usually only hurts when I put pressure in one particular spot. (Hey, doc, it hurts when I do this...) The spot is 3-5 inches above my ankle, along the very edge of my shin bone on the inside of my left leg. It's very tender, hurts quite a bit if that one spot is knocked or if I push on it. There's no bruise visible on the skin. [more inside]

How to determine pulse rate while running

OK, maybe the verb 'determine' is ambitious but having a close enough estimate is also good. There is a catch, I am not running on a treadmill and I do not have any gadget on my wrist or body. Is it still possible to have a nice guess of the pulse rate because, say, I want to be in the cardio zone and not in the fat burning zone. I think it is a function of age, fitness, speed and running duration but could not find an online chart for this kind of relation. And yes, I know the speed I run at.

Going out for a blog

I've been looking for good blogs about running, lately. I've found a lot of shoe-review sites, and a few gear-review sites, but I'm interested in general motivational stories of people's training, race reports, that sort of thing. Google hasn't been very helpful, so I figured I'd ask Mefi. What blogs do you like to read about running?

How do I choose a comforatble backpack for running

I am a very amateur jogger. I took it up a year ago and can now run 5km fairly consistently and am working my way (slowly, in every sense) up to 10km. I almost exclusively run on the way home from work so I need a backpack for my stuff. Snowflakey details inside [more inside]

If a dog attacks your ankle while you're running...

Last night running home, a small dog attacked my ankle. Luckily I was wearing long pants so the dog got my pants instead of my ankle. I'm not sure what my response should have been, and am curious if there's etiquette around this in case it happens again. [more inside]

Who knew Zombies could help you stay in shape

Thanks to recommendations on this site, I have been loving Zombies, run. I'm loving it so much, I'm running 6 times a week. I'm note sure how long it is, but the fall is the best time of the year to run, and is right around the corner. I'm looking for any recommendations on other games you can run to.
