Nike+ iPod kit

What I really wanted was a Garmin Forerunner 305, but what I've settled for is a $10 bike computer, free digital watch courtesy of my sister, and now, a $30 Nike+ iPod kit. It's a neat little gadget that has two components. One is an adapter that plugs into an iPod. The other is a sensor that slips inside a running shoe. It turns out that my running shoes are Nike+, which means that they have a little compartment in the sole of the shoe to hold the sensor. I wanted a pedometer so that I could expand beyond running up and down the same trail but still keep track of distance. It also allows me to program workouts, tells me how much longer I have to finish, plays my power songs towards the end of the workout, and logs all of my runs on the Nike website. The best part is that my sister has one too, so we can compete online to see who runs further and faster!
