Miloh,

There are tons of things you could do.  You should check out the 
quantified self tool registry:

http://quantifiedself.com/guide/

In particular the "fitness" category on the right hand side.  There are 
all kind of things specialized for running.  If you want Heart Rate the 
obvious choice is Polar HRM stuff (there are a lot of options).  But 
even something simple and (nearly) free like a pedometer app for your 
smart phone would be pretty cool.
