My friend Erin introduced me to the Nike Plus system that you use with your ipod and it's been so motivating for me. (Having 3 kids in less than 4 years & seeing what that does to your body has also been very motivating for me.... so scuuuuury.)
Anyway, I seemed to have motivated several friends myself, as well as, my sisters to get their own Nike Plus and start running. Yay!
We have monthly "Challenges" that set a goal of a certain number of miles we want to run.
I also follow Erin & Laura's blog, "500 miles in 2010" and I'm in their challenge for the entire year. I have ran almost 400 miles since I got my Nike Plus in September, but I can't wait until I complete 500 total miles in 2010. Craziness!
Since I have 3-4 hundred kids here during the days and evenings, it's tough to get outside and run. Alone. (What a dream.)
Thus, the treadmill.
Luckily, I accidentally tivo a few super-lame & cheesy reality shows on a daily basis.
They usually keep me occupied while I run a few miles during nap time or at night.
Some days though, I HAVE to listen to music.
Especially if I'm feeling SLOTHISH with very little energy.
This is where my old friends come into play.
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK.
Yes, they are as well, super-lame & cheesy to some extent.
But they are a part of my childhood, one of the perks of growing up in the 80's, and have put out the perfect running song for a dork like me.
Yes, you read that correctly. DIRTY DANCING.
Now GO RUN!
