I'm trying to build a circuit to count the number of steps when I go on a run. I need to know the best way to trigger the action of taking a step. The 4 digit counter is no probl em but a switch in the shoes doesn't sound like a good idea.

What are some of the other methods to trigger this. I thought about a cds in the shoe but the doesn't sound good either . If it must be a switch in my shoe what is the best style of switch to chose from. I'm new to electronics so I might be missing the most basic thing but I can't seem to figure this out.
