"Runner's High is a fitness mobile application for marathon runners"


"How might we improve better training experience to marathon runners?"

According to New York Times article, it cost about $1600 to prepare and run for New York marathon. Also, running a marathon is serious commitment in need of months of training and preparation. As a avid runner but beginner for marathon, I and my teammate felt more interactive guidance will motivate and help us to challenge running for a marathon. 



Avid runner : Participate marathon every year and run 4-5 times a week
Regular runner: Experience with marathon and run 1-3 times a week
Beginner: First time trying marathon and run 1-3 times a week but irregular

Running buddies , Weather condition, Run guidances, Keep Motivation
