I’ve never been the athletic type. The closest I came was being on the pom-pon squad in high school — and even that was due more to being well-liked by the faculty judges than any gift of physical coordination I may have possessed.
Thanks to my Nike+ iPod kit and a strong desire to not look 40 on my upcoming birthday, I’ve summoned the wannabe athlete within. The kit allows me to set, track, drive toward, and hopefully meet my running goals. It works with a little chip that fits in Nike+ shoes and an adapter that connects to your iPod Nano. Each time you connect your iPod to iTunes, it uploads your running data to the nikeplus site.
Following are where things stand with my goals. I’m pretty far behind and with the addition of a new bike (more on that later) & two solid weeks of upcoming biz travel, I’d have to say my goals are at risk, but I’m thankful for the motivation…
…and now have a better idea of reasonable goals. 🙂
