Today I heard about the most exciting invention since the mini-van! As an aspiring runner, I am always looking for things to motivate and help me become a better athlete (and I use that term loosely). I love to run, it has become my passion even though I am not naturally gifted in that area, but I still try. Anyway, my other passion is music of course and now Apple has teamed up with Nike to develop the COOLEST thing for anyone who likes a good jog: Nike+iPod Sport Kit contains a sensor and receiver that allows a new line of shoes to communicate with your iPod. Get this; a computerized voice acts as a personal coach, telling runners how they are doing. After your run, you can connect the iPod and transfer all your workout data (calories burned, pace, distance traveled, etc). You can even get coaching sessions from famous athletes to inspire you in your ear while you workout! That’s my kind of motivation.:) I spent way too much time tonight on the website researching EVERYTHING about this new technology.:) From the new apparel, to the music (which is going to be fantastic) and of course the shoes! You can pre-order one style now and the rest are coming out during later dates. I haven’t started running yet because I’ve had a few setbacks in my recovery but now I am more inspired than ever! I plan to pre-order mine when the style I like is available in June. For more info. check out the website at: www.nikeplus.com. I haven’t been this excited about an item since I got my Barbie Dream House for Christmas when I was 10! Haha.
