The live exercise interface

Amazingly, this app has a robotic voice that will overlay on top of your music, updating you with your overall distance, average speed per mile, and how far you’ve traveled.  Whats really amazing is that it uploads all this information into a web interface, showing how much further you have gone each run, how much faster, etc… Progress is simple to monitor in this fashion!  Since it’s finally warm in Ottawa, what are you waiting for?
