Not on the treadmill

Another revelation: I can't, for the life of me, run on a treadmill.  It was very cold this morning, and Tom's invitation to the gym just seemed better than braving the cold crispy outdoors.  I was supposed to do three miles -- piece of cake! -- but managed just two.  Good gawd, that thing is boooorring!   I'll remember this, and choose the cold next time.

Or that nice nifty new track.  I'm trying to get out of my expensive gym membership, which I have barely utilized.

Ditto on the tread. I have a friend that runs on that thing every morning, even when the weather is gorg just because it's "easier" she says. I say it's "harder" because I fight the constant urge to throw my water bottle at the meat heads down below me just for a bit of entertainment.

I hate the treadmill with the white hot passion of a thousand suns. No, really-I hate it. But I use it when I have to. I just found your blog and I really like it-I know the feeling of not being a "real" runner. I finished my first marathon and I'm still not sure if I'm a real runner..

Ooo I feel your pain!! Just found your blog & I love it! My trick for the treadmill {we have LONG COLD winters in these parts} are books on tape. It's saved me these past few months!!
