I have NEVER seen a monk seal while I've been in the water before, much less had one swim almost right up to me! Now I do have some zoom on my camera and this pic is cropped from the original, but dang, it was so exciting to have one swim right up! He swam right up to the group, hung out for a couple minutes, then swam away. About 15 minutes earlier he had come around for a few minutes, but I was much further away. The Hawaiian Monk Seal is an endangered species so it's illegal to harass them, but it's not illegal for them to harass humans! LOL...

My new year resolution is a continuation of last year's.... (ugh). The good news is I lost 15 pounds in 2008. The bad news is I have a ways to go... this goal will get me to a BMI of 22.Yep, that is a Wii! In addition to the running and the Nike+, I'm using the Wii for balance, coordination, and a little strength training. This thing also keeps track of my weight over time. It keeps me honest... after the balance board weighed me it plumped my "mii" up to the pic you see above. Nice...

- I don't need no stinkin' iPod to use the cool online features on Nike! This thingy doesn't do music, it only tracks speed, distance, time, and calories. I don't have iPod... I like my Sansa better... not that I listen to music when I run anyway, not when I have 2 crazed Sibes in tow! (or should I say.... yanking me along and not always in the same direction!)
- Plug the thingy into a USB port and all the runs you've completed since your last upload are uploaded automatically! No more remembering... how far did I go last Wednesday???
- Hard to cheat... you can delete runs but cannot alter them after they are uploaded.
- A pause button! (handy when a pup stops to.... you know....)
- I can't set a POWERSONG on my widget thingy... (bummer but not enough to make me run out and buy iPod)
- No backlight... makes it hard to use in the dark. And I am a night owl who likes to run in the dark sometimes.
- The distance and pace isn't perfectly accurate. I'm wondering if this will become a problem for me at some point since I'm rather anal about seeing improvement and there have been a lot of complaints about how it can be tough to properly calibrate this thingy.
- If you forget to turn off the thingy after your run, it really screws up your stats and there's no way to fix it, other than to delete it altogether.

So if you don't see that widget thingy updating for awhile, please tell me to get off my big lazy butt and take my dogs for a run.
I haven't set any real goals yet other than to get out there and run at least three days a week until it cools off, and then I will crank it up a notch or two. We are going to Maui in late-November and I would like to lose some of this extra flab. Not a long term goal but I have to start somewhere.
Wish me luck!! Randi
