AESTHETICS:
The site has an easy to read, user-friendly format with good photos and nice graphics. Registration is required to keep statistics but it is free.
ORGANIZATION:
An index on the right side of the pages makes navigation easy. All pages have a link back to the homepage.
REVIEW:
A team of high school students at Towson High School, Maryland created this site for the ThinkQuest Internet Challenge. It offers runners a way to keep track of their personal statistics over a period of time. By creating a free account either as an athlete or a coach, users can enter the numbers and with a few clicks see a graph of their performance. The site also provides information for runners through a series of interviews with track team members and coaches.
