Testing out the Nike+ GPS app

 This morning I set out for a little run with a newly downloaded application on my Iphone called Nike+ GPS. After setting up my profile all I had to do was start running, holding the phone in my hand. I was caught off guard when some minutes in to it my phone started speaking to me. It told me that I had ran one mile, and how fast I ran it. Loved this feature today as I was running in a foreign city. It tracked me on the GPS and helped me stay on route.
Running is very easy for me. But it was not always like that. I used to dread the thought of a hard run with hills and never ending miles ahead. Somehow I could never be satisfied with the amount of running I had achieved. With allot of grace for myself, a heart rate monitor and a month of running 5.7 miles, 5 days a week.. things started changing. My cardio foundation got strong... my motivation kicked in with having accomplished what I set out to do - running most everyday for a month and all in all I just felt strong! Here was my run today..

A run does not have to be a dull thing.  Do you run with this app..? Add me as your friend. I am not a serious athlete - I just run for fun, for the work out and for aging well...

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
-John Bingham, running speaker and writer

One of my role models for running is my sister Anette, she loves running and she is GOOD at it! She has always been fast and light on her foot. A run has always seemed easy for her and every time I would dare to go on a run with her.. she would be nice and run with me till the very last mile.. then she would pick up her pace and just take off!! Less then a month ago she ran the Oslo Half Marathon and she loved it. So I am always pushed to run a little further with her =) And I have her to thank for this application, she used it last time we ran together.

Run with me!
