  1. How do you spell the name of the app that tracks cadence? I can’t spell it, so I’m having a hard time finding it on the AppStore.

  2. Great post Lilla! Being a running coach for the last several years, I’ve helped my clients get the best out of their training with the help of technology. Currently, I coach at “The Run Experience” and we’ve got an awesome TRE Mobile App that’s full of running resources like this.
