    Hey guys. Time for December :) Lets work off that thanksgiving dinner (or 2) and get ready for New Years :mamoru:

    A little different this month, I only auto-invited the active members. If anyone wants to be re invited send a PM and I'll get on it.

    As always, if you have any questions, or would like to be added to the challenge, send me a PM and I'll add you as soon as I can.

    Nike+ Kit: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MA365LL/C?fnode=MTY1NDA3NA&mco=MjI5Nzc (you don't need this if you have a NEW iPod touch or use the Nike+ wristband)

    NOTE:
    You DO NOT need to purchase a Nike+ shoe. See Above
    NOTE: Nike now sells a wrist band that does not require you to use an iPod or iTunes but still use the Nike+ website and participate in a challenge. Check your local stores (link) for information
    NOTE: After you upload your run to your Nike+ page it can take a while for it to show up on the challenges page. Just keep that in mind.

    Did 15 miles in 4 days last week after a running hiatus from early summer.

    I thought Nike+ came with my Nike Experiences but I got fucked when I took out the soles to see if there was any device.

    Will purchase sometime this week. I'm planning on getting at least 35 miles with all this fat fuck holiday eating going on.




    Who won last months?

    i need at least a 5, 3 has been all I can get and thats a work in fucking circles.

    and PS fuck nike shox. Love the shoes, but I've already killed the ones I bought first of Aug. I know 200lbs is a lot, but this is shitty. I wish they had a warranty like my tires.

    10 days into the month and only 5 people have recorded runs. Come on people let's get this going...
     
  10. I'm pretty much "out of commission" but I went for a 1.5 mile walk today. :hs: I just needed to get out and it was something.

    I run at least 3 times a week, but I had to switch to an elliptical due to knee problems. Nike+ doesn't work on an elliptical :hs:

    I keep loosing runs on the Nike+, so much so that I bought a Garmin Forerunner 305 and always wear that too, love the google mapping feature.

    One thing though, no way to manually enter your runs into Nike+ when it looses one though right? Meaning my mileage on the two differ by quite a bit.

    This maybe a dumb question but does the Garmin work on a treadmill? It's too cold to run outside here and I've been looking at picking up a Garmin as well.

    You would need the foot pod option for the garmin since it works generally via GPS. The forerunner 305 is on heavy discount right now at a ton of places including costco, i think it's 159 there, money well spent to say the least.

    I lost another 11.8 miles from my sunday run, that's 22+ miles lost last week on Nike, grrr.... I think that tears it for me, going to switch over to pure Garmin 305, anyone want to start a garmin running crew? Cooler since you get mapping too...

    If people are interested, I'd be happy to combine both Nike+ and Garmin challenges into one thread and post the results at the end of the month.
