MapMyRun is one of the most popular running apps on the market today. You can discover new routes in your neighborhood and try and beat the fastest time someone has ran that same route or run routes you have previously to beat your personal best. The app gives you visual and audio updates on your time, speed and distance. Sign up for sponsored challenges to win prizes such as shoes or vacations. There are free running plans such as 10K training to help you accomplish more and you can check out how your friends are staying fit via the ‘Activity Feed.’ MapMyRun syncs up to the major activity trackers like Fitbit and Polar. The MapMyRun website gives a larger picture to your workout data and the local workout groups you can join. The app also allows for food logging so you can hit the right balance of calories burned and calories consumed.
