Nikeplus.com milestone

Nike today announced that Nike+ runners -- who use iPods that sync with special Nike running shoes to track their progress -- have logged more than 22 million miles on Nikeplus.com. The recorded distance is equivalent to completing more than 800,000 New York City marathons and burning off the calories of more than five million slices of pizza, according to Nike. The shoe-maker plans to introduce new Nike+ features this summer to enhance runners' experiences, offering new ways to challenge each other and participate in "virtual" marathons. Nike and Apple teamed up in May of last 2006 to offer the running shoe and iPod training combo, which according to Nike quickly made Nikeplus.com the world's largest networking place for runners.

    Special shoes? No.

    You don't need a special shoe to use the Nike+ dongle... your site already has pointed that out in at least two articles, right?
