OK, I admit it. I'm a gear nut. And I love "trick" stuff. Not as much as Jenny, but more than most. So when Jenny managed to get me one of the new Nike/iPod set ups I flipped.
It's a little "pod" that goes in a special Nike shoe that communicates to your Nano through a little "deal" that clips to the bottom. It tells you how far, how fast, you're running etc, THROUGH your iPod earphones. So, you're running along and a voice says "One Mile completed". Towards the end it tells you "Half mile to go".
And all the time your own music is playing.
Then there's the "power song" button if you need to be fired up.
It is TRICK. And I'm not a guy who likes to run with music. But, it sure made today's run go by fast.
ORN: 5 miles, R10/W1, 58 minutes
