Nike+ nano = fun

I had that much of an awesome birthday that it's taken me until today to get time to take a photo of my prezzies. Pictured are the following:

  • Red iPod Nano (8GB), given to me by Mr. Trim.
  • Nike+ sportkit, given to me by Mama Trim.
  • Armband and sensor pouch, also given to me by Mama Trim.
I have been dying to try the Nike+ kit ever since I heard about it. Trouble was, I didn't have a Nano to go with it. So I pined. And I petted the iPod display case whenever we went to Future Shop. And I pined some more.

I guess Mr. Trim couldn't take the hints anymore so he bought me this gorgeous Nano. It even has my name engraved on the back! Mama Trim gave me money, so I used it to buy the kit and the accessories. I also splurged and bought a Nike Original Run mix from iTunes.

Last night I tried out the whole kit and kaboodle and let me tell you, I felt like an honest-to-goodness athlete. I had my Nike cap on, an iPod strapped to my arm, the Nike+ dude telling me how fast I was going, and the Crystal Method pumping in my veins. I was an utter goddess of running. Until I started to strut my stuff during my walk interval and pulled something the wrong way. Ouch! Nothing like reality to pull you back down to earth, lol!

Below is my first run, as pictured on the Nike+ homepage (don't ask me about the dip at the end, I was legging it, honest!). The website is really nifty as is the Nike+. I absolutely love my new gifts. Thanks Mr. Trim and Mama Trim! I puffy heart you both!
