Nike + Running App

My friend Lisa showed me the Nike + Running App about about a month ago, and I love it! I have been running outside quite a bit since I moved here, and it has been a life saver for me when it comes to tracking my mileage. I used to get in my car and track a run before I actually did it, and while this worked out okay, it took me quite a bit of extra time. I also worried that I would miscalculate the distance when I was running. This Nike + Running App makes it much easier for me to to track my distance, and it saves me a ton of time. And to top it all off, it's FREE! 

It can track my run whether I am inside or outside, which makes it super nice for me. I can also look at all of my runs whenever I want to, and find out all of the stats on them. This includes my overall pace for each run, the distance of the run, and the time. This really helps to motivate me to do better on each of my runs. I have the app set to tell me what my stats are after I run each mile, and I really like this because I can pace myself accordingly. 

There are certain aspects of the app that I haven't tried yet, but I am excited to try them out. There is section of the App that allows you to create challenges for yourself, to help motivate you. 

You can also choose to start a program with a running coach to help you improve your runs. 

Friends can also join you on the app, and you can see each other's progress. The whole Nike + Running App is awesome, and it works amazingly if you don't have a Garmin to track your outdoor runs! You can learn more about the App before downloading it by visiting the Nike website HERE. I hope you like it as much as I do! Now download it and getting running! ;)

And because no post is complete without some pictures of Rosalie...here you go!
