So my friend Sara France just posted on her blog about the coolest thing I've seen in awhile. I think I may have found some motivation to actually enjoy running... and that is competition and statistics!

So I have already posted about the new RED iPod and I had heard about the Nike+ product line... but had never really checked them out before. So Sara had a link to the site and I checked it out.


It will actually keep track of all of your running history... like how fast... how long... what days of the week... etc. And it will also let you have competitions with your friends! It's crazy I tell you!

Check out this tutorial video from the Nike+ site.

So the next step was... how much for me to get hooked up like this and actually maybe start to like running! If you get the 8GB iPod Nano, a pair of $130 Nike+ shoes, the Nike+iPod kit, and an arm band to wear the iPod... you're looking at around $450! YIKES! Of course there are cheaper combinations if you don't get the biggest iPod and carry it in your arm with a rubber band... but then you won't look as cool! :o)

Still... even with the big price tag... this is a sweet thing!! Good job Apple and Nike!

Brett - you and I should wear these all the time and that way we could track who is the laziest. We could track who moves the least. I like that idea better

Oh my... not another cool gadget for me to purchase!!!

It'd be great if I could actually run more than a mile without my knee acting up (old injury)!

Hey BTW, what font did you use on Jasmine's logo?? I'm doing a invite and wanted to use that font.

So have you gone out and made these big purchases yet or started running despite the lack of this cool equipment? I have been thinking about you and haven't heard from you much lately (probably due to my comment to your "Free Time" post). After I read this "Motivation" post I was thinking how great running would be and how it would allow you or me to be alone with our thoughts especially during your "For A Month" vow. Now that the month is over will you run, will you still have quiet time? How did the month go?

Anyway, I put up a couple new posts a while back and one talked about you and I didn't get a comment. Is everything okay? Let me know how you are. Love Ya and Miss Ya!

I should have said...

When the month is over will you still run and have quiet time? Be sure to let us all know how it went.

Also, as you can see, I finally figured out how to get logged-in to Blogger Beta.
