Jeff Galloway's 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 marathon time, Easy marathon has the perfect program for you.

Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy marathon includes 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.

Really good running training App
Having run alot earlier I started running again after a break of 10 years and 10 kg...
The features run and walk with synchronized music pace has been fantastic. My knees have not started to ache and its worked with 3 runs + 1 walk per week for the last year with both 26.2 and 13.1 mile programs.
The possibility to adjust music level separately from coaching voice level is very good.
The team has improved on the GPS tracking and provided lots of support when asked.
Nice app that has room for improvement
It really has added something to my outlook as an endurance athlete, particularly as I approach 50. My legs feel fresh and I have logged more marathons in one year than ever before since using this program, including two of my fastest three and a new P.R.
That said, I'd love to see it be switchable to landscape view (which would be easier to read from my arm band) and to allow for some nuance in training pace... For now, at least as far as I have been able to figure out, options are limited to one-minute increments, so one cannot train on a plan for an 8:20 mile, but only an 8:00 or 9:00 mile.
Finally, the app sometimes (rarely) freezes when measuring a timed run, such that one must rely on a watch or other means to know when to quit.
Note that music bought on iTunes cannot be synced to the app, so keep this in mind when choosing tunes.
So far so good. Finished the first week. Time and distance display is very good - clear, customizable. Changing speed of the music works pretty well on tunes from my collection although a few could not be interpreted into the format it uses to get the beat. Jeff Galloway's "coaching" is actually enjoyable with useful tips. Setup is easy and it looks like modifying the workout program will be easy. Good app for any runner but especially for one starting out.
