Matthew MurphyCompleted first 5k by week 7 (in 0:27:37). Has since done Ironman! GREAT-GREAT-GRANDDAUGHTER OF EMILY POST NOW RUNS"I have NEVER been a distance runner hated running warm ups in high school, was always the last one done, huffing and puffing the whole way. While I had heard of interval programs, I had never tried one or thought I could do it... until I found your app. It has been the missing piece that allowed me to break my weight loss plateau." Lizzy PostFROM 365 POUNDS TO RUNNING THE 5K... IN 6 MONTHS"In February of 2011, I weighed 365 pounds. I decided it was time to change. I began to look at programs to help beginning runners. I was convinced that this app from Bluefin Software was the best choice. On July 4th, I ran a 5K! If you're thinking about starting to run, I can tell you - without hesitation - that app from Bluefin is the best start." Mark D RuckerCompleted 5K and 10k. Signed up for half-marathon on Oct 23, 2011!Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
