Reader Pete emailed me about a fantastic strategy he used while cheering for his mom in a half marathon this weekend. He used the Find My Friend app for iPhone to track her during the race. "As long as the participant has their iPhone on them, GPS enabled, and allows you to follow them in the app beforehand, it's a great and accurate way to support your runner or walker!" he wrote. "It really allows you to go to a lot more points along the route without having to wait, wondering where they are."
