So, check out this new gadget that I just became aware of...
My husband bought a pair of Nike+ shoes for running a few months back -- he liked the looks of them and comfortable for running. Well, it wasn't until last night as we were looking at his shoes for a possible wash after playing with them out in the mud that we realized the insoles remove and that there was an oval pocket. Interesting! So my husband investigated and found out about this very, very cool gadget that helps you track your running stats.
The way it works is that if you have either a certain type of iPod or iPhone, you place a special sensor in the pocket of the insole before running and you can track your pace and time as you are running via your already-owned electronics. So, not only are you listening to your favorite tunes during your workout, but literally, you can also check your stats "on the run"!
You gotta love technology! As I continue looking through the website, I also see that you can use it at the gym to track your workouts there too-- just plug your iPod or iPhone into a Nike+iPod compatible machine (treadmill, elliptical or climber) and ... voila!
