Bug found, don't despair

Ok, it seems next time you run, all your kms/miles are reloaded into the challenge.
So just keep running.

Nike crashed by weight of human race?

I'm a little worried, but I don'tthink you should be. Keep running and I'm sure the correct stats will show shortly.

I tried calling Nike+ customer service. The estimated waiting time exceeded 20 minutes.
Let's try to forgive them and their silly race.
Soon, only ours will count.

Addicted to E-type

If there's a more inspiring song when you're tired than Campione, I want you to tell me what it is.

Addicted to Lance 2

Yesterday I ran faster than I felt like, just cause I wanted to hear Lance again.
I ran 5 km. I ended the workout. I was faster than ever. But no LANCE!
turns out he only gives you praise if you tell the iPod you will run 5km in advance.

poo poo. don't repeat my mistake.

Addicted to Lance

I'm addicted to hearing Lance and Paula tell me I'm so great. At the same time intrigued, how do they split the praise? has any of you figured this out?

I'm Yelena Isinbayeva

I didn't run as fast as many of you, but I ran faster on my 5kms than I've ever done before. Paula Radcliffe told me so.

This is how I felt afterwards:

The drama

so ok,perhaps not every day. but often enough! I love interaction!
talk to me!

Improvement please

I love it that you're here, and that you run.
But would it kill you to comment?
I post questions every day, no one replies.
It's tragic.

What I saw

I saw horses and nature.
on my return, I saw my son fighting a pop star.

He'd already beaten the feared NASA-knight.

I listened to Bollywood-tunes as I ran.
But I need to find a better selection before I recommend any such songs.

What did you see today? Where?

Baring my soul for you

Dear fellow runners/readers, I'm about to tell you my cheesiest secret. When I run up a hill, and the entire body screams no, I have a secret weapon.

I tell myself "I'm a little train, choo choo"
the steam engine that can not be stopped.
works like magic.
will you still respect me in the morning?

Without the Nike+ thing, indeed

I went running yesterday and today and both times I forgot the friggin iPod and thus have NO logged kilometers despite the fact that I covered 9 km in sweat. Oh well, vanity, I'll do it over. another day.

Also, know what happened to me? I had my Nike+ thing calibrated wrongly. Turns out I've been running much faster and further than I've thought.

Since I forgot the iPod at home, I couldn't run with music and so had to focus on birds singing, the scent of raspberries in the forest, the sight of ripe blueberries and the sound of my own breathing. My thoughts came and went.

The entire time I was missing the music like crazy.

Without the Nike+ thing

If you run without the Nike+ mojo, I'll just post your stats below. No cheating!
Above, proof that my PT is taking his job seriously.
If you need help I can help you, because he helps me.

I'm back and ready to run with you.
I used to look with pity on runners.
"There goes another suffering new year's resolution" I would scornfully remark as panting suckers in sweatpants moved past me.

Then I wanted to start running, but thought I needed a personal trainer. And I can not afford one of those.

How lucky then, to find out that I live with one!
Do you?

ps. Yes, that's him in the background, working out with Joel.
