Gifts for Life

The great thing about this gift is that it should help me get healthier and hopefully fitter too. This is a present that will encourage me to want to exercise more...

My kids got me an IPod Nano for Mother's Day so I can listen to music while I run. I can plug my micoach into the Nano and listen to my songs, podcasts and books while micoach cuts in every now and then to tell me to speed up or slow down...usually micoach is telling me to speed up tho'.

This is super Kewl since I'm gearing up for the marathon next month and my runs have been getting longer and longer and lonelier and lonelier. Now I can turn on my tunes and have a little someone to take along with me.

Hopefully, this gift is going to make it easier for me to run, and run, and run...

How 'bout you...any special health-minded gifts for you?

I really like having an iPod for my runs. I've customized my music mix so that I can keep pace to the beat of the music and stay on my target pace.

The 10-miler I just ran didn't allow headphones and I was worried about running that distance without music, but it worked out fine. The half marathon I'm doing in September also does not allow headphones/earbuds, but I'm not as worried about it now that I know I can run that distance tunes-free.

Christina: WOW! That is a gift. So kewl...

Jen: I never thought about them not allowing music...YIKES...I wonder if I should get used to it then. I've never run with music but the longer I run the more I'm thinking I need something to keep me going. Now I'm going to head over to check out the rules again :(

GG: I always thought my kids were smart now I'm just more convinced :)

THW: I'm hoping those good tunes will help me have a great workout ;)
