Day 17 Giveaway::Nike+ iPod Sport Kit**UPDATED** | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans


******The winner of the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit is random number 8:  Nancy!!! That would be our Bacardi Mama Congrats girl! Email Christy when you get a chance with your shipping info!!******

Seven weeks ago, the only time I ran was when my daughter was coloring on the walls or touching my Mac. Or maybe if I had to pee real bad. For reals.

Now? I love to run.

It all started when we decided to take the 5K Challenge with EA SPORTS Active. I was iPod-less and knew that I’d probably need one to help me get me through the runs. I was looking forward to training, but I honestly didn’t think I’d enjoy running. Since my birthday was coming up and my mom asked me what I wanted, I picked an iPod Nano (in red!). While I perusing the Apple site, I noticed another gadget I was certain I couldn’t live without.

I’m a gadget girl.

So I added this sweet little gadget to my cart and eagerly awaited it’s arrival. And arrive it did!!

And now? I have arrived. I have arrived as a runner, and I feel like I owe it all to the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit. What? You think I’m being dramatic? Well, I’m not. I really do think my success in running hinges on the feedback I get from Nike+. When I’m running, it speaks to me (literally). It tells me how far I’ve run, my pace, my time, and how much I have left. I can choose workouts based on distance, time, calories, or choose a preset. As I run, I can get on demand info, and sometimes pushing that center button and hearing my stats helps keep my legs moving. Plus, it lets me choose a Power Song, and when I feel like I can’t go on, I just have to hold the center button down for the song that will keep me going! That song is currently Pump It! by the Black Eyed Peas.

AND, when I get home, I can sync my iPod up with the Nike+ website and see an awesome graph of my run. Plus, it keeps track of all my runs and I get TROPHIES. Enough said, right?
