The Nike+ system was the genesis for this blog and the title was procured from a challenge that was stated back in 2006! In case your not familiar with N+ it’s a sensor and chip product that through your iPod or other N+ device allows you to sync up your running data and compete in virtual challenges with other runner and communicate with them through the N+ forums, it’s a great introduction for runners who want some basic running data and don’t want to spend a fortune; the kit costs $30, on more sophisticated devices (Garmin, Polar, Sunnto etc), there is a great online support forum where you can communicate with other runners.
I still track my miles through N+ more by habit then anything else and I host a monthly Quadrathon challenge which you’re welcome to join and I do post to the forums on occasion. Of the technology and the support most of all I do recommend the forums as a great support system for anyone, newbie and seasoned alike. It's a great place to ask questions and provide answers and cheer on (or trash talk) fellow athletes whatever their ability. Anyway I had completely forgotten about a challenge I had joined at the beginning of last year until this arrived in the mail, admittedly a month or so ago and in fact my N+ total is somewhere north of 3500 miles, but even so it was very nice to get!
Thanks Clover and the team!
Have a great weekend!
