    Does anyone else use their nano as well as the nike + tracking system for running?

    I just got new Shox and I picked up the nano shoe insert too. I ran with it for the first time yesterday and found it encouraging and motivating once I logged on to nikeplus.com and realized how detailed the tracking system is.

    The part where you can initiate challenges with other users seems awesome. I'd love to set something up with other people who might be using it the same way I am. We could track each other's progress on a daily basis. Challenges can be based on total miles, total calories burned, etc...

    You can set up challenges for any length of time. Anyone interested?

    I got the Nike + part as a Christmas gift, but I don't yet have an I-Pod Nano. As soon as I get one, I would like to join your challenge.

    Aight, I am in. I got one for Christmas as well. I use a velcro strap to keep the accerator on my shoe. I had to go to a specialized running store to get a pair a shoes that works for me . Getting old sucks. I expect my mileage to increase as the weather gets warmer. Right now, Baltimore is a freaking block of ice after the storm that we just had. Running on the sidewalks is not safe and it is also about 15 degrees.

    <subscribes to thread>

    Just to add some info about my nike/ipod experience so far.

    I've got my nike dongle velcroed to my laces also - works great and means I didn't have to change my shoes.

    I've had it nigh on 2 weeks now and have clocked up about 18 miles, not too shabby.

    Looking forward to the setup of this challenge.

    If you want to invite me on the nike website, use email address adam.stuart " at " gmail.com.

    Good luck with the running guys! OR.

    Which Nano do you guys have? I have been looking, and can't decide which to buy. Can I buy any Nano to use with the Nike system, I don't want to buy one, then find out that it won't work with the Nike +. While I like music, I am not one of these people who needs 4,000 songs saved on the I-Pod (like someone who I work with). I am thinking 500 songs sounds like plenty. Even 1 gb - 240 songs sounds like plenty for me, but I have been leaning to a 2 gb model.

    I have the old 2gb nano and it works great. Any nano works with the relevant firmware (software) update through itunes.

    OR.

    If I had the ability to spend more money (without putting even more on my CC), I'd totally get some new shoes and the ipod addon and join in.

    Maybe I'll have it by next challange :)

    Abby,

    I'll start a mid-month challenge for you if you'd be interested. I'm sure the others in my current challenge would be up to run one for the next 2-3 weeks including you.

    Let me know when you've received your gear and are all set to go.

    OPTHETA- As far as i know the video iPod doesn't have the option of participating in the nikeplus challenge at this point. Bummer huh?

    Is it too late to get in? I just finished up my diet so I can do cardio again. I gotta get in shape for the Baltimore Half Marathon in October (and the Annapolis 10 miler in August).
