Been there, Done that, Got the T-shirt

So, Elisabeth, I wonder how our T-shirt will look. I'm thinking a bunny on the front surrounded by dust (ala that kid on the "charlie brown" comics. On the back "eat my dust bunnies" with our blog address and the members home towns listed below the title.

Hey, maybe we should get some corporate sponsors. Like some women's groups or companies by/for women. Oprah!

Elisabeth's Last 5 Runs

How to post your Nike+ here...
-Go to your Nike+ account, go to "My Runs" then "runs". Then go to "runs options" and then "share runs." Click on "Grab the code" then come back to blogger. Go to your blogger dashboard (after signing in), click on manage posts, edit the post you want to put this in, and past your code. Then click "publish code" so the world can see it!

THURSDAY PROGRESS: Boise Day 10, Denver Day 4

Map Your Run (or Walk)

I found this cool tool that can help you figure out how far you've walked or run when you decide to take it outside for a little fresh air. Alternatively you can have a distance goal in mind and start drawing on the map to figure out where you should go to meet your distance goal.

Here is a sample route from my house. I found the interface a little tricky at first, but if you just make small clicks along the route you want, it will draw the line for you.

P.S.- I realize Nike has similar functionality on their site so if that one already works for you keep on keepin' on. If you haven't tried the Nike one, hopefully this post will give you some incentive. If you don't have or want to get a Nike login, then try the mapmyrun one out. They're all powered by google anyway, lol.

New Blog Elements

Ok, so I'm serious about posting stuff, I swear. I have all sorts of new topics to start and things that would be fun to post, but if I'm the only one posting, I really don't care to. However, as the blog admin I feel it's still my job to put up the progress posts, and to post on any admin kind of things.

So, I'd like to draw your attention to some cool little things I added to the sidebar. I have a links section. So far the only links I have put there are links to the rss feeds for the blog posts as well as the blog comments. That way your RSS reader can tell you when someone has added a comment which is particularly useful for us since most of the chatter is going on in the comments. Also, I added my Nike+ stats for my last 5 runs. I'd like all of us who have Nike+ to put theirs on there too, so contact me and I will tell you how to do it.

BTW Nike+ is a great little gadget. It's used in conjunction with your iPod, tracks all your stats for your runs, and uploads it for graphing/tracking, etc on the Nike+ website. It also talks you through your runs a little bit. It's a suped up pedometer. You're supposed to buy a Nike+ shoe to stick the little insert into, but I just stick the little doodad into my shoe, loose on top of my foot. So far that works ok. Without the shoe it's only about $30. Pretty sweet!


MONDAY PROGRESS: Boise Training Day 7, Denver Training Day 1!!!

Posting on the Bunnies Blog

You don't have to be an author/contributor to this blog to be able to post comments on it. Anyone can post comments. I was hoping all participants in this group would at the very least post comments talking about their progress/experiences with this whole thing, though not everyone is doing that yet. Maybe when real training starts on Monday? I could have had us just email our thoughts/progress back and forth to each other instead of do this blog, but for whatever reason, I thought the blog would be better. Anyway PLEASE post your progress if you do nothing else!

But the reason I invited you all to be contributors is so that you could also put new, actual posts on this blog. So far, I'm the only one to do that. And I didn't want that. Teddi thought it would be good for me to explicitly say this since she didn't think that was clear. I manage 3 of my own blogs already, I was hoping this would be a community blog where you guys start your own topics of conversation. Just for the sake of keeping the main blog page clean, I propose keeping those discussions limited to the comments, but please please feel free to start new topics in new posts yourself, that's what I gave you the authority to do when you became a contributor. This is what I was hoping when I wrote that I hoped you guys would post tidbits of things to inspire us, etc..

If we all chip in and contribute, it's not a big task at all, just put something up when you have a question, or when you want the group to do something fun like show pictures of gear, or whatever. I'm really too busy and overwhelmed with things as it is to be doing this & trying to motivate everyone on my own.
