Running

Though running may not be the most exhilarating of exercises, it remains the foundation of countless activities in the athletic community — whether talking soccer, Frisbee, or football. Moreover, it’s one of the most minimalist sports in existence, essentially requiring nothing more than your free will and desire to run. The following apps are designed to make the most of your running capabilities, charting, and mapping your progress along the way.
