Track Runner's version 3.0 update has me running

Today is National Running Day, which means it’s the perfect day to put some miles under you since we’re getting serious with #MobileFit month. One of my goals this month is to get more into running. Tonight I’ll hit the pavement with my new GT-1000 2 running shoes from Asics (Amazon.com). They’re the storm/lightning/limeade color in case you were curious. It won’t be a super long-distance run; instead I want to focus on some quality interval training. Track Runner for Windows Phone just picked up a handful of features in their recent 3.0 update, one of which was support for interval training. Full changelog after the break.

There are people who like to exercise and those who avoid exercise at all costs. The exercising group may be more willing to strap on a fitness tracker, however we'd argue that those who avoid exercise are the ones that would benefit much more. In fact, it seems the non-exercising group are the ones that should consider buying a fitness tracker.
