With over 22 million Endomondo members freeing their endorphins all over the world, there were bound to be plenty of cool people. So, how would you figure out who among them is the coolest?

We wanted to know more about what it takes to win eternal coolness (since, honestly, who wouldn’t want to brag about that?) so we asked her. If you want to know the answer to this too, read on!

As a new parent, there’s probably nothing more alarming than having your child become sick and not being able to figure out why. Early this year, one of our users and proud parent, Steven, experienced just that. Without warning, Steven’s 10-week-old daughter Jasmine started having cold-like symptoms.

Thousands of runners across the planet are right now putting in the final preparations for the upcoming series of Spring marathons. From London to Boston, via Barcelona and Copenhagen, the Endomondo training miles are being logged, kit is being sorted and personal goals are being set. I’m one of those runners but I’m preparing for a marathon challenge with a difference. In less than two weeks I will attempt to run eight marathons in 20 days on three continents.
Starting on 5 April, I’ll tackle the brutal Sahara Desert Ultra, the Marathon des Sables. More than 156 miles, carrying up to 8.5kg, in temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius up and down sand dune mountains. If I survive that I then fly to America for the Boston Marathon before finally coming back to the UK for the Virgin Money London Marathon, where I’ll finish my challenge on the Mall in front of my friends and family.
