"The idea for Fit Phone Runner was pretty simple," said Blaine DaRonco, founder of be | daronco, LLC. "My wife is a runner and I'm certainly not. I wanted to get into running but I seemed to lack motivation at times. Then I would see people spending hours of their lives trying to earn awards in video games. So I figured why not make something where you get awards for doing real world actions. In this case running. Fit Phone provided the foundation for the cardio tracking and Apple's Game Center made it possible to do the user sharing. The awards and leaderboards turned out to be plenty of motivation to get me off the couch! If we can get others to do the same we'll be very happy."
