Ooh Shiny!

I've got a new running toy! Up until recently I have been running with my iPhone using the Nike+GPS app. Love, Love, love it!

I started to realize though that the longer I ran the more the closer my battery got to zero. Even if I started at. 100% is ended up super low. Outside of the fact I get a little twitchy without my phone, I just didn't like the idea of potentially losing phone functionality to support my runs.

Enter the Nano. I loved that the 6th generation was so small. Loved that I could attach it to a watch band. I am pretty much addicted/familiar to my Nike+ , so this was a no brainer for me. I opted for this version instead of waiting for the new one solely based on size. Kind of was into the idea of ditching the arm band bulk of my phone.

I was hesitant because I didn't think I would like the chords from my ear buds running the length of my arm. I was also concerned that I would have to start all over with Nike+ since I didn't see away to sign in. Turned out the chord wasn't a big deal but it will take a little getting used to, but wasn't the total pain I expected. As far as Nike+, I was quite pleasantly surprised that once I hooked the Nano up to charge that it recognized I already had Nike+ and asked if I wanted to sync it. I might have actually done a happy dance around my living room at 11p last night.

I think I'm in love!
