I got a big "Congrats" from Lance Armstrong

My friend AJ gave me the Nike + iPod sensor a few weeks ago. The sensor goes on/in your shoe, and then you attach a little device to your iPod Nano. You calibrate it by running a set distance, and it knows how long your stride is. Then every time you run with it, you can see your distance, pace, and total time. I've been using it for about 3 weeks, and it's fun to see the graphs and charts on when you sync up the iPod. The iPod has a voice that tells you your progress, such as "one mile completed", "halfway completed", "400 meters to go", etc. Today I ran 5.45 miles at Miramar Lake. At the end of my run, a voice suddenly came on and said, "This is Lance Armstrong. Congratulations! This is your longest workout yet!" I was pretty stunned. Was not expecting that. How cool! Although, it's only my longest workout since obtaining this device. My actual longest workout EVER was 26.2 miles in Honolulu, Hawaii on 12/10/2000.
