Marathon is an endurance race by foot over 26 miles and 385 yards / 42.195 kilometers.

It’s an Olympic event for men and women, marathons are done all over the world. To perform a marathon an athlete has to do a lot of preparation and training and often goes to her / his physical limitations.

Try this great little software – Tangerine!

It analyzes the rhythm of your music and generates you a playlist of songs which fit to your training plan. With the right beats per minute (BPM) and beat intensity of your songs you can use faster songs to become faster ;).

It’s all done in your iTunes music library. Right now the software costs around 25$.
