"Fuel My Run can keep you from hitting that wall." - Lifehacker Runners that fuel properly can improve their half marathon and marathon race times by up to 20%. Fuel My Run is the first running app that lets you track your workouts, while helping you take in enough fuel to finish your run strong. Most half marathon and marathon runners slow down significantly during the last half of the race. More often than not, an inadequate fueling strategy is the cause. Developing a fueling strategy and practicing it well before your race is vital. Fuel My Run ensures runners have enough energy to finish strong, maintain pace and never hit the wall again. Perfectly suited for runners training for a half marathon, marathon, triathlon or ultra race. FEATURES - Track the distance, time and pace of your run with GPS. - Eliminate guess work by getting fuel reminders at specific times or distances. - All fueling plans for each workout are saved and ready to adjust or use again on future runs. - Simulate the fueling plan for your upcoming race.
- Sync and share your workouts with your RunKeeper or MapMyRun accounts. - Share your progress with friends on Twitter and Facebook. - Free fueling plans for half marathon and marathons distances. - Know exactly how many carbohydrates you consumed on each run. WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING Jason Fitzgerald, Running Coach "Fuel My Run answers the two most important questions about fueling for long races: how much and when? Just choose your fuel and let the app do the rest - say goodbye to hitting the wall in your next race!" Brock Skywalker Armstrong, Marathon & Triathlon Coach “The old adage “failure to plan is a plan to fail” is a good one for any marathon training program and it applies to fueling as well. The app Fuel My Run has given me the ability to create, test and tweak my fueling plan so I have all the guess work eliminated before race day.” Matt Johnson, Running Coach, Runner Academy "It can be all too easy to forget when to fuel when training. This app removes that potential mistake and lets you really dial in on what works for you. By being able to track how you fuel and feel during your training you can line up on race day confident and ready to execute your plan having actually ran it beforehand and knowing how your body feels at various points. I’ll be recommending this app to the runners I coach." TIPS Fueling is highly individual. What works for other runners, may not work for you. Try lots of different types of energy gels, chews and sports drinks and see what works best. Fuel My Run will help you through this trial phase to find the optimum fuel types and fuel quantities to finish your race strong. If you don't know where to start, Fuel My Run offers free sample fueling plans for the half marathon and marathon. For more visit http://www.fuelmyrunapp.com.
