Running on tempo
Date:3/11/2013

Some runners take it slow while others tear up the pavement.

Either way, music gives runners their mojo, and can be the key to creating a productive, enjoyable run, according to a team of Michigan State University seniors whose fitness app, TempoRun, took first place at the national Student Startup Madness Tournament March 9.

Leider joined forces with fellow runner Benny Ebert-Zavos, a hospitality business senior, and computer science seniors Phil Getzen and Adam Proschek. Within a few months, the iPhone app was born.

TempoRun is unlike anything in the market, since other apps adjust song tempos as a runner's pace changes, Leider said. While TempoRun could expand into soci
