So it's been pretty cool over the past couple of weeks to see how my friend Deyl's Ironman performance has inspired so many people!
I've been getting emails and phone calls from people I've never even met before telling me how now they're gonna start training and it all goes back to Deyl simply doing something he loved and sharing his joy with others.
I got a call from my Showit Web partner Todd in AZ saying he was starting to train and my buddy Brett is starting to train and my new friend Sarah sent me this note on MySpace and it is just incredible to see how far this goes!
This morning I got up and went to the gym and had my best run yet. I've finally worked out some of the kinks with the Nike+ stuff and am getting the hang of how it works. My previous runs have messed up my average time because I forgot to turn it off when I'd finish and then it would keep counting the time when I was getting a drink of water instead of running.
Here is some of my info from the Nike + site...
I like the run graph because it shows your pace and as you can see I would run faster at times. I've been listening to this podcast from Robert Kiyosaki and it's so good. I've been learning so much and getting healthy at the same time and I think I run faster when he talks about cool stuff. I dunno.
and the final feature I like about Nike + is the ability to talk trash to the people you're racing against. Right now it's just me and Brett in this race and he's already claiming his knee hurts...what a baby. Seriously. It's only been two days. Anyway, I got one of these things for deyl as well but he told me that he ran 16 miles yesterday so I'm not gonna give it to him.
So how many of you are training! I want to know and if you have the Nike+ stuff let me know too and we'll make a new challenge with everyone! I want to talk trash to all of you. I'm much better at that then actually working out!
:) Happy Trails,
