Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
With runners lacing up across the globe for winter marathons, half-marathons, and ultras of every distance, crucial attention is being paid to nutrition and fueling needs for endurance athletes looking to achieve their personal bests. Fuel My Run is a new innovative app which makes fueling easier—providing distance calculation, fueling reminders, carbohydrate consumption data, and plans for keeping nutrients in check during long workouts.
Based on creator Mark Kennedy’s personal marathoning experience, Fuel My Run provides a fresh new take on a challenging and complex element of endurance sports: keeping carbohydrate levels up during long, difficult workouts. After hitting the wall at the 30km mark, Kennedy realized that he had overlooked his personal fueling strategy—a common oversight for even the most experienced runner.
“More often than not, it's lack of adequate fueling that causes a runner to hit the wall. All the training in the world will not help a runner in those last few kilometers of a race unless they have taken their fueling seriously. Fuel My Run is the tool I wish I had while training for my second marathon,” Kennedy says.
Available for iPhone on December 3rd, Fuel My Run provides an immersive nutrition experience for distance runners. What’s more, the app syncs with Runkeeper, and provides targeted feedback and data throughout a runner’s workout plan. Stats can be kept for long and short training runs, races, and workouts of any distance. Additionally, the app’s clean interface and seamless integration makes it a complement to any runner’s GPS tracker of choice—allowing athletes to keep their training consistent even when it comes to their preferred software.
