Welcome to the Podfast!

Game on! We've got a group of about 6 of us that are going to start training together using the Nike+iPod system for our running. Should be lots of fun - we have an inaugural 11 mile race slated for next weekend (the 10th and 11th, for which I am so not in racing form yet...) that so far has 3 of us going head to head. The more the merrier - if you want in on the 11 mile race or any of the challenges we'll be doing together (including group distance goals, mileage goals, more long-term challenges, all kinds of stuff), then please join the Podfast. All are welcome, regardless of your speed or experience or distance or anything. A great way to have some fun and join a supportive group of athletes in training.

Here's how to join the Podfast:

• First, you'll need an iPod Nano, and the Nike+iPod kit. Check out for more details, if you need them.

• We'll be using the website as our homebase for the Podfast. Specifically, a special Podfast forum. The lowdown on Transition3 - it's a website that I set up last fall that I think is exciting, but haven't had the time to really get out there. S'okay, for now it'll be the perfect clubhouse for Podfast. Anyway, you just need to register by choosing a username and password. I own the site, so rest assured I won't do anything shady with your info.

• There's a whole lot of stuff you can do at T3, so feel free, but you'll want to hit the big blue "Podfast Training" button on the homepage, or hit the Forums link and find your way to the Podfast forum. You can also see the last several forum discussions on the homepage. That's where we're discussing all things Podfast, so make your way there and join in.

Easy breezy baby. I'm really looking forward to it - think it'll add a whole new flavor to my run-training. Please feel free to spread the word, even if you yourself maybe aren't training with the Nike+iPod system - this is the kind of thing that, the more people we have involved, the more it can be for everybody.

Now if I could only get my ass out the door today for 5 miles in this forsaken cold...
