So, I had a different post all planned out for you all, but sometimes something comes along that I get so excited about that it warrants changing my plans (and interrupting people mid-sentence to tell them about it).
I had heard buzzing and rumors from Mizuno recently and had my suspicions, but the email this morning confirmed them. (And confirmed why Mizuno is the best running company EVER!)I could not wait to try the Mizuno Baton app out so I downloaded it to my phone as soon as I got home from work. It is a FREE download and was super quick. When you turn the Mizuno Baton app on for your first run it begins a count down as the program only works for one week. I fired the app up, it was as simple as just hitting start run, and headed out to the path near my house. As my Mizuno Wave Rider 17s and I headed down the trail the Mizuno Baton app kept ticking away the miles. It was beyond easy to use, you basically just start it and forget about it. I also loved that it continued to run in the background while I was using other programs, like Pandora or even texting.When I finished my run it was time for my cool down walk and the app just kept on rolling. This proves that the Mizuno Baton app would still be great for you if you prefer to walk instead of run.When I finished my Garmin read exactly 5 miles, but the Mizuno Baton app said almost 5.6. This means I would not use it as my sole form of mileage tracking/GPS, but really who is going to complain about making a bigger donation?!?Overall Mizuno Baton App Info:
– free, quick download
– super easy to use just hit Start
– the app can run in the background behind other programs
– submit your run with the click on a button
– lasts for only one week
– each mile = $1 donation
– great for runners or walkers
– raise money & make a donation for doing what you already do
… Do you sense I could go on and on and on and on about how AMAZING this app is?
Will you please downloaded it now so I can stop rambling on?
Will you download the app?
How many miles do you run or walk a week?
