My brother is joining Ironman in the Philippines this year and I told him to use Marathon Guru's app for mobile use free magazine! play.google.com/.../details and itunes.apple.com/.../id767144576

So far, so good! Never a marathoner myself, I could only suggest what others say is good or quality! Check it yourself if you ever needed a free running magazine you can install in your mobile phone.
