I am at #9 right now (see my dailymile profile) with 736 miles, and still hanging on in the top ten. But my greater emphasis on running over cycling has me at risk of dropping away. Maybe I need to get on that bike more.

Here are the top ten affiliate marketing exercisers, as of July 5, 2012.

dailymile syncs with Garmin devices, Nike+ device and iPhone app, as well as a number of iPhone and Android clients.

You can also manually enter your cycling, swimming, running, and walking efforts.
