Nike + - First Run

I finally got my Nike Plus Shoes and took my first run tonight. 20 minutes, 2.55 miles, 7:55/mile pace. I was pretty sore from my soccer game yesterday but felt pretty good. It was hot (95), but I wanted to get a run into the shoes. They felt a bit tight, but I am used to running in a pair of Nike Frees with no socks. Having login issues, but I look forward to uploading my run and playing with the Nike + online features. After further review, I love the nike plus running system. For those of you that don't know what it works like this. Get a nike+ enabled shoe (most of their running shoes are). Get the kit that comes with the ipod receiver (plus into bottom) and a little chip for under the sole of your left shoe. Go for a run and your ipod keeps time, pace and results. Lance Armstrong or Paula Radcliffe tell you how you fared. Its nice after a fast run to hear Lance tell you that you just ran your fastest mile. Good stuff. I compete in challenges (distance, speeed, etc) with my brother in Boston and other friends. Great motivational tool. Props to nike plus for this one! Great training tool!

Good luck with the new shoes. I hope they treat you well. They aren't very different from your "frees"
