    "Half Marathon Trainer uses a walk/run approach to your training. It seems to be easier on the person and more effective training. It is not just another boring app and will help one reach their goals."

    "This app has a lot of neat detail and statistics without getting in the way of the experience. I love that I can change my routes temporarily, and it creates a secondary route I can choose if I wish. The feedback is sometime helpful, if a little too general. Fun app though!"

    "One of the best things about RunKeeper is that I don't have to take my phone with me when I run. I'm not one of those people permanently attached to my phone so it's great that I can leave it at home, go for a run, and sync it to my phone later. I have been using it for over 6 months and love that it helps me stay motivated to run with the challenges I can set and the audio cues I can hear as I run."
