Import your Nike+ runs to Garmin Connect
Note: I'm pretty sure after Nike changed their site, Fatigue doesn't work anymore. Mega bummer.
If you're a developer, Pull Requests are definitely accepted- after my initial import of runs I have no need for Fatigue anymore, ironically enough.

We just imported 72 runs. See them for yourself at: http://connect.garmin.com/activities
This grabs run data from the low-fi Nike+ histories, so while it won't have GPS maps like what Garmin rocks, we'll populate your Garmin history with Nike+ data for things like distance run, how long your run took, what day and time it was run, and shit.
For the Techies
gem install fatigue
If you have no idea what the heck a gem install is, have no fear; none of this is hard to do.
For Mac Users
Open up your
Applications folder, scroll down to
Utilities, and then open
Terminal. Once you're there, type
sudo gem install fatigue and then
enter your Mac password when prompted. This will download the code to your
machine. When it tells you "3 gems installed", type
fatigue and enjoy the
NOTE: If you run into a problem during installation where it spits out
Failed to build gem native extension, that means you need to install XCode.
It's available on your OS X install DVD or through the Mac App Store. We're
working on fixing this so you don't need to install XCode in the future.
For Windows Users
Microsoft makes everything harder since you'll have to install Ruby yourself.
Until someone forks this repository with better Windows instructions (hint
hint!), the best I can give you is to go try
RubyInstaller, install it, and then see if you can
gem install fatigue in it. Somehow. I don't know really, but I have a lot
of faith that you can manage it. You seem like a strong-willed individual.
Nike might release a public API at some point in the future (although they'll probably make you buy their shoes in order to use it). Until then, we can sneak onto their widget API. You need to find your Nike+ user id, though (numeric ID, that is; not your login).
To do this, log into your Nike+ account, click on "Runs", and then the long number right at the end of the URL is just what you need. COPY AND PASTE IT WITH ALL DUE HASTE.
You'll also need to make sure your runs are public. Click on your face on the sidebar, go to settings, and share your life away. No need to be modest.
Pretty sure Nike will change their site, Garmin will change their site, or both, so this may be a bit unstable, from time to time. Have no fear; open source is here.
If you'd like to contribute fixes (thanks!), fork this project, add your
changes, make sure tests pass with
rake, and send me a pull request.
High-fives for new methods that are properly TomDoc'd.
