That girl's a running fool

For my bday my bf gave me one of those Nike+ gadgets that connect to my ipod and help to track my training info. I was skeptical at first, mostly because I was hoping he would give me his old Garmen gadget (the one that tracks your course, elevation and speed on a gmap mashup). But after using it only once I was convinced - it is truly a miracle. Sent from God. It speaks to me as a run, tells me how far I've gone and after the half-way point it speaks encouragingly about how close the end point is. Not only is a miracle on the road but it's got one of the prettiest online interfaces! Take a look at this.
This is what it shows me when I come back from a run - my distance, time, average pace, calories burned and a cute little squiggly line that indicates how fast I was running throughout.


This screen tracks my mileage, and if I hover it gives me more specifics on that run:

There's also a feature that brings out the competitor in me. The leaderboard allows you to see who's leading in distance, duration and speed across the world. Looks like I've got a ways to go before I bring down Jannag.
