AchillesBlog NYC Marathon Widget is now available. You can see it in action on the left sidebar of my page.
It keeps track of your recovery progress starting from your surgery date to 365 days afterwards.
From that, it figures out where you are in your recovery in terms of the NYC mararathon.
(Update: You can set a recovery date of your choice. Just enter the mm/dd/yyyy in the settings. For example: 11/29/2008 )
It’s a nice graphical representation of your progress. Since many of the people recovering from ATR are athletes and some have ran several marathons, I thought this would be appropriate.
Why 365 days? My goal is to recover as close to 100% as I can AND be in excellent shape by the 1 year mark.
If you’d like to keep track of another date (being FWB, out of a boot, walking without a limp, days until your vacation) you can do that now with the new enhancements.
The next enhancement is to allow you to keep track of multiple dates with different colored circles or squares.
As always, I appreciate any feedback. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

If you need any help, please leave a comment on this page and I can set it up for you.
You’ll have to tell me where you want the widget to appear, whether you want a transparent water map or a regular map. And also whether you want a custom title.
