Tag! You’re it!

Having trouble keeping that New Year’s resolution to run every day? How about making your daily workout into a competitive game with friends? Nike and others have been messing around (productively, in my opinion) with adding game mechanics to people’s workout routines, now with a social twist.

    This is really cool! Nike has been doing a lot of neat things when it comes to running. They were the first to have a connection to iPod and provide a way to track your progress, giving runners (both experienced and inexperienced) the abilities to have set personal goal. It’s a lot more fun to run when you’re running towards a goal. Adidas is also doing something like this with their “miCoach” app which lets athletes set their running training to meet specific sport requirements. Depending on what sport you’re training for, the running will be more focused on distance, sprinting, etc. Technology is pretty amazing.
