    There is a way you can outline the streets you have walked on Google maps. You'll have to mark each corner you turned down, but once you've mapped it out Google will tell you how many miles it was. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

    You probably don't want to be running with something as large as a Nook. If you know your route and have access to a computer, you can map it out before or after your run. Not in real time but this is the next best thing. Two of the more popular sites are http://www.mapmyrun.com  and http://www.runningmap.com

    The other thing you can do is run/walk by time instead of distance, particularly if you're doing the C25K (http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml).
