Running App

There are several running apps available, and they all do similar things. They usually track your runs, calculate your mileage, and give suggestions on nearby routes. The app I created is close, but offers some different features.

Feature #1- My app will calculate your runs in progress so at any time you know how far you’ve gone and how far you need to go. After your run is completed, the app automatically saves your runs so that you or someone else with the app, can run the same route in the future.

Feature #2- The pacer screen will let you know what your past and present pace of your runs. This is a great feature for someone wanting to improve and create personal best records. The pacer will calculate and keep up to date with every run completed.

Feature #3- You can use this app to communicate with your friends. Your friends will be able to see your progress, run history, and photos.

Feature #4-The gallery screen will allow you take take any kind of picture related to your runs. It can be of your trail, your surroundings, or even yourself!

Need a Boost?

Most should understand the importance of eating healthy on a regular basis. What’s even more important, is to eat the right foods to get the nutrients needed when incorporating an active lifestyle. Whether you enjoy light running or long distance, it is vital to get the boost needed so your performance is at its best!!

Here are are a few of the many complimentary foods for runners:


Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E and can help stave off soreness after training. Eat a handful for a great source of energy a couple hours prior to going for a run.

Eggs serve as a complete food protein, meaning they have all the crucial amino acids needed to promote recovery and repair damaged tissues post workout. They also contain 30 percent of your daily vitamin K, which is vital for healthy bones.

The key to energy for runners is complex carbohydrates. Quinoa proves to be a great source and, like eggs, is a complete protein to help your body bounce back after a serious sweat fest.

The king of fish, salmon is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fats. These essential fatty acids help balance the body’s inflammation response and create more elastic blood vessels to help benefit your performance.


Mixed Berries
Rich in anthocyanin, this powerful group of antioxidants have been said to help with post-run recovery and muscle repair in addition to many other health benefits.

Known as the queen of greens is one of the most antioxidant-rich vegetables around. Kale has strong anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce the risk of muscle damage from exercise.

Bananas serve as a great pre and post workout snack for runners. Almost all carbohydrate, bananas are high in potassium, which is lost in sweat during exercise. Potassium is necessary for proper nerve and muscle function.

Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes contain the trace minerals manganese and copper, which are crucial for healthy muscle function. With healthy complex carbs, protein and fiber, they are the perfect food to provide sustained energy on a long run.
