Easy Half Marathon dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your pace. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by. You can also download 15 tracks of high-energy fitness music for FREE to really get your playlist pumping.
DESIGNED AROUND YOU
Whether you're looking to complete your first race or you want to improve your half marathon time, Easy Half Marathon has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy Half Marathon gives you complete control as you move through your workout. Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy Half Marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy Half Marathon includes FREE GPS tracking so you can see your pace and the distance covered during your workouts. GPS works best outside with a clear view of the sky. When you want to work indoors on a track or on a treadmill, use your beat-synced music to set your pace, and Easy Half Marathon will track your results.
(GPS available on iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5)

What's New in Version 1.7.1
Fixed a completion display problem when skipping ahead during a run.
Also general performance enhancements for longer runs.
Not at all pleased with this app!!! I did my first run on the treadmill and had no issues with it. However, when I took it outdoors, I realized that you can't lock your phone while the app is in use or it will not work. Also, it doesn't allow you to skip through the warm up, or skip through anything for that matter. The most frustrating part however was halfway through my run, my hand slipped and I hit a button and the app completely reset to the beginning of my run. If it allowed for you to skip through, this wouldn't have been an issue. But I was left scrambling to figure out what timer to use without stopping my run completely. I love the Jeff Galloway training. PLEASE fix this app so that it's more user friendly!!!!
Screen locks with music
I had the same issue people mentioned here with the app sleeping when I locked the screen. Support was crazy quick to respond and they told me to just load in music. Works great and the music feature is awesome! It’s the whole reason to get the app. Love the music matching my pace and Jeff’s advice is terrific. Recommended!
Great App, but battery completely drains
This is a great app. Gets you motivated and the coaching is great. However, as mentioned I the other reviews, the battery drains completely. Unless you can finish a half marathon in about an hour, you will be completing the rest of the race without music. Really too bad because this app does everything else so well
