Why It's the MOST POPULAR 5K Running App
IRONMAN LISTENS TO HIS OWN MUSIC"
"Not only did this app give me audio alerts telling me when I should run or walk, but I was able to listen to my own music from my iPod list instead of some other person's preference of motivational music."
– Matthew Murphy
Completed 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 Post
FROM 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 Rucker
Completed 5K and 10k. Signed up for half-marathon on Oct 23, 2011!

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app!
I downloaded this since it was free and I need to get back into shape after slacking off all summer. It is really easy to use. I like that you can use your own playlists and how it just breaks into the music to tell you when to walk or run. I just turn it on and go! I will be buying the full version to keep going with this...have to keep up with my boys!
Was very satisfied until...
...I used the app while running on a treadmill, instead of outside. Suddenly, it wasn't able to track me properly and said that I barely moved the entire 30 minutes I was running on the treadmill. I suppose it had to do with the fact that it was stationary running, but I would hope that the app could adjust for that, though.
Good and not so good
Overall, I find this app very helpful for tracking distance and calories burned. There are occasional glitches where it is very easy to accidentally turn off the app and not realize it and find parts of your work out or never recorded. I also question the accuracy of the calorie counts. They seem pretty high.
