Many of our runners enjoy meeting with a training group. If you haven’t already, be sure to connect with fellow SOS runners via our Facebook Resources Group at Facebook.com/groups/336491720599577.
If you prefer to run alone or your schedule just doesn’t allow you to meet with a group, don’t be discouraged! Today we are going to share many awesome apps for runners to help manage your training and have you race day ready! Whether you’re joining us for your first 5K or are a seasoned marathoner, these apps for runners are worth checking out.
This app provides a great platform for runners and cyclists to connect. If you’re delving into unknown territory, definitely take a look at Strava. Strava tracks your performance. It also gives you the option to provide a safety contact and allow them to locate you via GPS.
