the SeaWheeze app is back
posted: May 16, 2013
The days and weeks are going lighting fast – only 85 days until SeaWheeze 2013!
We can’t wait to yoga, run and party through Vancouver’s beaches, mountains and city streets with you again this summer. Last year, we created an app to help you with all things half-marathon related: training, a city guide to help you maximize your weekend in Vancity, run playlists and more. We listened to your feedback that you loved the app and that you wanted even more features added for this year’s event.
Please meet our brand new SeaWheeze app! We have added a ton of cool stuff designed to make your SeaWheeze 2013 experience as good as, oh, I don’t know, eating Oreo ice cream and getting a foot massage at the same time (*Editor’s Note: Alexis’ creepy idea of a good time does not reflect the views of this blog or 99% of the human population).
Let’s get into the nitty gritty of what features have been added to the app.
makeover alert: my training section
We heard you say that you wanted to track your progress up to the big day. Now you can check the boxes of which runs, yoga and cross-training you’ve completed per week and the app will compile your progress for you.
let’s get physical accountable
You can now share and interact with friends on Facebook who are also training – you can see their progress and they can see yours.
Things just got serious.
There’s a Photo Booth with different frames so that you can share all your SeaWheeze memories with friends on Facebook, Twitter and more. There’s also a live Instagram feed of anything hashtagged #SeaWheeze so you can keep up with all the yoga.run.party times happening during the weekend!
get down on it
Playlists are now listed in the main navigation for easy reference.
My apologies in advance for multiple Mariah tracks…I was surrounded by butterflies and wearing denim cutoffs when I put them together. #notreallysorry
live goal crushing
We will now be publishing live finishing times via the app on race day. These will still also be offered via desktop and tablet. Get those goals!
it’s the freakin’ weekend
Weekend events are now broken out by day to make weekend planning easy breezy.
We are counting down the days until August 10th! This app is available in the App Store as of May 17th. What part of the SeaWheeze weekend are you most excited for?
