[prMac.com] Magnolia, Texas - Distal Industries, LLC, a Texas company, has announced the release of Meet-Up Mile, an iPhone application for marathon spectators that calculates meet up times for each mile along a race course.
"If you've ever watched someone run a marathon, you know how challenging it can be getting to the right place at the right time to see them go by," said David Colvin, founder of Distal Industries. "Meet-up mile makes it easy. You choose where you want to watch the race and Meet-Up Mile tells you what time to be there so you don't miss your runner."
Using an intuitive interface, users enter the time the event begins, the runner's target pace and where they want to watch the race. The app then calculates what time the user needs to be at that location to meet up with their runner. In addition to calculating meet up times, the app also predicts how long it will take for the runner to complete the race and the time of day the runner will cross the finish line.
