"Active.com’s Couch-to-5K is one of my favorite couch-to-5K apps. With its customizable features, interactivity, and well-rounded interface, I may actually stay off the couch this time."
—148Apps, October 2011

"I knew as soon as I decided to start the Couch-to-5K program that I would need something to keep me accountable—not just to showing up for my training, but to actually doing it properly. Of course there’s an app for that."
—CalorieLab, April 2012

"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the “Couch-to-5K” running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you haven’t done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."

Great Motivation! The only thing is it doesn't log any of my walk and always says that it can't connect to server so I can't see my buddies.

Feeling great! I've never been much of a runner, but having voice prompts to keep me motivated and tell me when to change intervals that play over whatever music I want has been exactly the motivation I need! I am on week three now and I plan to download 5k to 10k when I finish this
