Whether you are a skier or a runner, you can use GPS on your smart phone to track your progress.  Some iPhone and Android apps are specific to your sport, while others keep track of just about anything you need mapped.

For iPhone and Android users alike, your GPS-enabled phone can also get you to the nearest health-conscious restaurant or medical care center.  For many of your health-related needs, GPS on your smart phone is likely to be able to help you out.

AroundMe iPhone app, no matter where you are.  The free app lets you search for nearby venues based on your GPS location, providing contact and other details, along with a map view and driving directions.  The info you add to AroundMe can by incorporated into your contact list for future reference.

If your speed is all you need to track, then the GPS Speedometer Android app will work great.  Using GPS, this free Android app will calculate your speed based on time and distance, which could be great for walkers, runners, and cyclists.  Based on my personal experience, this speedometer is rather accurate as well.
