Better than the website!

This app makes me WANT to go for a run.
Ok, maybe not that dramatic, but it definitely makes it so much easier to track and feel proud of my progress.
Now I must admit to an embarrassing fact -- I had a very hard time using the original MapMyRun website (WHAT?! CLICKING IS HARD!) but this app takes all the work out of tracking your distance.
If you're like me and have super-glued your iPhone to your body, you just tell this little app to start and it uses your phone's built-in GPS technology to follow your route as you run. At the end, it spits out statistics like distance, time, and average speed. And it even syncs up with the website so you can monitor your progress over time.
A hidden advantage to this app? If you have a habit of running in unknown areas like I do, you can use iMapMyRun to find your way home.
[Expert tip: Start your music BEFORE you start this app. It's embarrassing how long that took me to master.]
