Running & electronics

Rest day on the schedule today.  Did 20 minutes of Yoga.


So are you electronically tied in?  I"m sure many of you are.  Here's what I use in regards to Running/fitness things that are electronic:

  • First the hardware:  Imac computer, iPad, iPhone, Garmin 310xt.  I'm not sure you need anymore than this or, really, any of this, right?
  • Then I've got the Blog which has turned into something much larger than I've ever thought it would be.  It started with just a place to write down about my thoughts and turned into many more things.
  • There's also the apps for iPad and Iphone.
  • What about websites?  Here's some I use frequently:
    • Dailymile
    • Garmin
    • Blogger, of course
    • Detroit Runner(to make sure things are looking good)
    • Google reader
    • Facebook
    • Twitter
    • Run Michigan
    • Running in the USA
    • Running Warehouse
    • DC Rainmaker(technically a blog but incredible information for electronics)
    • Any other website related to running(1000's)
  • Then there's Blogs.  Holy Cow, I don't even know how to express the number of blogs I follow. Of course, this probably limits the amount of commenting I do on each of them but I enjoy them all - big, small, non-technical, technical, detailed, long, short.  I won't give a list of my Favorites because everyone has their own taste but there's so many to follow, you will find what you like out there.  I've been thinking of putting a list or having a contest about this but don't have the details down yet.
So, yes, I guess you could say I'm tied in electronically.  It's a social media frenzy out there!

What do you use electronically that you love?  Any iPad apps, websites, blogs you can't live without?

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. It's funny that you mention this because I was recently thinking about how much I use electronics. I am typing to you on my iPad, I've got my iPhone, Garmin, etc. we are going on vacation a week from today and will be electronic free while we're there (not including Garmin when I go for a run!) and I can't wait. No Facebook, email, blogs, news. Complete freedom. For 3.5 days!

  2. I never thought about how electronically tied in I am until I read this. I could do with less but I really do enjoy it all. I love the socialness of the blogosphere.
