Mapmyrun friends?

Hi all,

just getting back in to running and using mapmyrun to log for me.   I'm doing 5-10k at the moment and I'm looking for friends to add as its quite motivating to see others completing their runs. 

I live in Surrey, 46 years old and My user name is Twincle1970

Unless of course mapmyrun is so last year and their is a more popular app to use? image

    Strava. But only add real life friends that you know. Adding strangers is strange.
  • Strava is better if you want to see other people, I don't think its too odd for people who don't know each other to follow each other on Strava. Its something that strava encouarges by suggesting people who you should follow.

    Fair enough. Just my opinion on the following strangers bit. I don't really get Facebook either though.
  • Thanks guys, lol np with adding strangers on specialist sites.  I've 70 'friends' on myfitnesspal I've never met beforeimage I'm surprised its so hard to add 'buddies' on mmr, will d/l strava later

    I used to use MapMyRun but found it temperamental. On more than a few occasions it either decided to pause or measure short.

    I have used Strava for about five months now, it's amazing. I'm quite lucky that there are quite a lot of runners in work, including some crazy ultra runners and iron man competitors.

    There are also some professional athletes on Strava who you can follow...

    It's also got a segments feature which is really great. You can either create your own or find a segment that has been created by another user and compare times.
