I’m a runner. I love to run. And I run around the world. But I really dislike most of the run tracking tools.
For the longest time, I lived by the Garmin Forerunner 205 but as cool as it is to track my runs with GPS, the watch was a pain to use. It always took forever to get a fix and sometimes it would loose GPS tracking in the middle of a run. Worse, the run tracking software is crap.
Then I found RunKeeper, by the way that its been most influential on my running – a Facebook post. I saw a cool run map on Justin Thorp’s profile and clicked through to what is an amazing iPhone application.
Here’s the 4 reasons why Runkeeper has bettered my runs:
Now RunKeeper can do even more than this, but these 4 features have me hooked already. And its so much better than Nike+, where I have to remember to put a doodad in my shoe – hard when you run in multiple pairs of shoes.
So enough of me rhapsodizing on how great the iPhone app is – get Runkeeper today!
PS: This is an honest love for Runkeeper – I don’t get any benefit from them for writing this post or you clicking on a link. I just want you to run better & more often
