Best geo-training aid

Bones in Motion is an alternative to Nike/iPod training aid. With a Nextel/Sprint GPS mobile phone you can get a training edge with personal feedback during your activity; effortlessly save your activities and share them with friends.... Very simple to use, BiM Active software turns a GPS phone into your personal fitness monitor.

If BIMactive doen't support your mobile phone carreir (like me); you can sign up for a free online account. It's been mashed-up with google maps, and tracing training routes is a snap. i really like this concept and will start using it to track my marathon training

Nipple gaurds for men: What?

Not being a runner, I didn't think running could harm to male's nipples. I'm told that women's sports bras protect them. Well story after story of bloody nipples...and I started to scour the web for nipple guards (besides flexible band aids).

Wow...NipGaurds, orginally posted by

NipGuard feature:
  • Protective outer layer stays on to create the nipple cavity and also to help prevent resistance with the shirt.
  • Protective nipple cavity shields the tip of the nipple from chaffing and abrasion
  • Medically safe adhesive endures long runs and all weather conditions, yet still easy to remove after your workout.

Very cool - Nike running with Apple

The new question might be "What's on your Nike?"

Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE), which is based near Beaverton, Ore., and Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: APPL), which is based in Cupertino, on Tuesday announced a partnership to connect an iPod Nano to footwear.

The first product developed through the partnership is the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, a wireless system that allows Nike+ footwear to "talk" with an iPod Nano to connect a runner with a personal running and workout experience.

Nike CEO Mark Parker and Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled Nike+iPod at an event in New York attended by seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong and marathon world record-holder Paula Radcliffe.

The new Nike+ Air Zoom Moire is the first footwear designed to communicate with the iPod. With the Nike+ footwear connected to iPod Nano through the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones. The kit includes an in-shoe sensor and a receiver that attaches to the iPod. A new Nike Sport Music section is on the iTunes Music Store and there is a new personal service site.

The Nike+iPod Sport Kit, which works with Macintosh and Window PCs, is expected to be available within 60 days for a suggested retail price of $29 through the Apple Store, Apple's retail stores, Apple authorized resellers as well as, Niketown, NikeWomen stores and select retail stores in the United States.
