FOR RUNNERS WITH MONEY TO BURN
For serious money, you can download a training plan and have personal access to experts from the New York Road Runners club, who will help you prepare for the New York City Marathon next November. Despite flaws with the MapMyRun software as a coaching app, the live human touch brings the technology forward.

THE COACH
A team of physiologists and competitive runners from The New York Road Runners club.

THE VOICE
A somewhat creepy software bot gives splits.

Plans range from $49.99 to $999; for iPhone and Android.
