Saw this on a friend's blog, and since I have a deliverable deadline of "whenever I get it done tonight," why not start the night off with a little procrastiblogging fun. I swear I followed the Rules exactly... and some of the answers are a little creepy in their aptness.

Genius

Nearing on two months since I've updated this thing...shame on me. Never fear though, I've encountered a magical device that has brought me back to the blogosphere.

I'm so compelled to spread the word about the magic of the Nike+ Ipod, that I'm blogging tonight, despite the 2,000,000 other things I'm probably supposed to be doing.

So, long story short. This:



is genius.

That's almost enough said...but let me tell you just a few more things.

1.) The marketing for this gadget has been pretty misleading. You do NOT have to have the special Nike shoes to hold the sensor, so if Nikes have never really fit you well, or you've got good shoes and don't need a new pair, that doesn't mean that you don't need this gadget.

2.) It's incredibly easy to use. You basically just stick it into your Ipod and you're done. No software to download, no training manual to read, totally self-explanatory.

3.) You tell it your goal - time, distance, whatever, and go. No need to ever look at the screen of your Ipod. A little voice will come in your ear and tell you how long you've been running, or how close you are to achieving your goal.

It's absolutely stellar. I highly recommend putting it on your Christmas list. They're pretty small, so Santa should have room for lots of them.

Okay - more on my life later. In the meantime, happy running.
