    I'm willing to give prizes for monthly competitions to help motivate us all to get out and run more if we have enough people.

    Wow that looks awesome. Makes me consider getting an iphone now. I like that it offers biking as well.

    would it be gay if I did it on a treadmill?

    I really do not enjoy running, but I incline walk when I am done at the gym.

    I run on the treadmill a lot. Especially winter time.

    checkii - if you already have an ipod or can get one cheap (i think they go for 30-100 on craigslist) i think it is worth it. It does help motivate you a bit more to run.

    You plug it into an ipod nano and have a sensor on your shoe. Keeps track of how much you run, how far, how fast, how many calories you burn and a few other things. You can start challenges and upload your info online so everyone can see what everyone else is running.

    will it work with a 1st gen nano?

    it would be fun to get a running group back together at work to run on lunches and i can upload for everyone exactly what e ran.

    I'd get one, but I don't want a third iPod. I've already got a 30 gig photo in my truck and a 1 gig shuffle I use when I run and cut grass.

    The 2G Itouch has Nike+ support built in, so you would only need to purchase the shoe sensor.
    I don't think trailguru would be completely operational on the itouch as it lacks a GPS chip.

    Thats not bad, this might be a worthy purchase. I rather get an iTouch then a nano i would only use to track my runs.

    do you run when you're training for a fight? if not how do you get in extra cardio? or is it just all in sparring, rolling, etc.

    Doesn't the ipod touch have a mini hdd which has moving parts? i know apple said the only reason they did it for nano only was because it did not have moving parts
