Walking around 4th

last night the hub and I made a deal, we would get up at 5:30 before he left for work and go for a walk. I roll over this morning at 6:23 a.m., as he is putting his shoes on, and realize that I had overslept. So, as tempting as it was just to roll over and go back to sleep, I drug my butt out of bed, gave the boy a kiss, put on my Nike's and went for a walk, by myself.

  As I was walking I snapped this shot with my phone.  I live in a historic carriage district in town and there are several houses that have these lights in their yards. I think they are so cool. Our next door neighbor even has one.  And even though we admire it during the daytime we curse it at night when the bright light is shinning through our upstairs bedroom window.

EXCITED! but for only a minute.  I finally put two and two together and realized that if you have this nifty sensor in your Nike shoes and you have an iPhone you can go to settings, Nike + iPod, sensor and a little voice tells you to walk around to activate your shoes and then you can sync your shoes with your workout and it will keep up with how many steps you take, miles you walk, etc. HOW COOL IS THAT!?! Well, OF COURSE mine doesn't work. I walked and walked and ran and walked and mine never did activate. What the heck? I feel like I got cheated. This, of course, will require further investigation and perhaps an email to Nike!
