What is Dress My Run
Dress My Run is a tool to help people determine what to wear when they're planning to go for a run, based on the current weather conditions.
Runner's World had a simple "What to Wear" tool that I used regularly to determine what to wear on my runs. It seems like a pretty easy question to answer, but I became reliant on it. And one day they redesigned their site, and it disappeared. So I decided to create my own.
They have since relaunched their tool, and it's even better. They did an excellent job. But I was already nearly done mine, too. So I finished it. And I think it's a significant upgrade, not only to their initial tool, but also their new one. Here's why:
- We get your conditions automatically. No extra work needed, no forms to submit. Just visit the homepage and we figure out where you are, what the conditions are, and what you should wear.
- We save your preferences. Like to be a little bit cooler on your runs? Let us know and we'll maintain that when you return. If you log in with your Google, Facebook, or Twitter account, we'll even remember your preferences if you visit from a different computer.
- More control. You prefer celsius and kilometers per hour? No problem, we'll get rid of any reference to those pesky imperial measurements.
