Test Run Coach users report:

"I just finished my first Half Marathon and I am hooked and want to do another Half Marathon! I have no idea what races are coming up, but I wanna get started! Thank you for helping me do this... NEVER THOUGHT I COULD." - Rena, San Francisco, CA

"I thought there was no way I could run for 1.5 hrs. I headed up into the hills and soon enough I found myself a few miles from home... I ran for 1 hr and 50 minutes that day. That was the furthest I had run in maybe 10 years. If Run Coach hadn't set me up with the goal of running 1.5 hrs, I would NEVER have kept going. Thanks again for the coaching plan! I'm not quitting!" - Erin, Berkeley, CA.

Run Coach by Running Method distills training experience, coaching expertise and exercises physiology into a sweet iPhone/iPod Touch app that creates customized training plans for you. Running is a simple sport, but putting together a good training plan for a marathon is anything but simple. Run Coach bases their plans on the same principles that Olympians employ to set personal records and then scales them to meet your running challenges." - Parker, 3:45 for 1500 meters, San Francisco, CA.
