What it is: An app that finds cool running routes and tracks your progress
If you’re getting into running, MapMyRun is the virtual coach you need to stay on track. It records your progress and occasionally interjects to turn down your music and read out your real-time pacing stats, which sounds simple and ineffectual, but is actually a powerful motivator. Plus, if you prefer running outside instead of the gym, you can pull up the Route Genius feature when you’re in an unfamiliar spot -- it’ll plot out a variety of routes other users have tracked nearby.
