I’m loving this App

At a friend’s suggestion, yesterday I downloaded CardioTrainer (the free version) for my Motorola Droid.  It clocks my work out and calories burned.  When I take my lunch time walk, it uses the GPS on my Droid to map my route.  When I’m done, I can save my workout information, and even upload it to Facebook if I’m so inclined (which so far, I’ve not been).

As a bonus, you can listen to music as you exercise and get a progress report.  However, you need to have the music aleady programmed into your phone.  Yesterday when I took off on my first walk I kept hearing a strange collection of opening lines from songs.  Then I realized the only music I had on the Droid was my collection of ringtones.  The program was working it’s way through the list.

Do I have to have CardioTrainer to exercise?  No, not really.  It’s just another incentive to keep me going.

And I can use all the encouragement I can get.

28 Days of Ronald Reagan – Day 1

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Ronald Wilson Reagan
February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004
40th President of the United States

February 6, 2011 marks the Centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth.  Reagan was unquestionably the greatest President of my lifetime, and in my opinion, the greatest President of the 20th Century.  For the month of February, 2011, we present “28 Days of Ronald Reagan” featuring a daily tribute.  We’ll include his wit, and his wisdom and some of our favorite stories.
