I have a love hate relationship with my treadmill. hahaha
Richard was able to bring home a treadmill that he got from a job for free!!!! That was a huge praise. In the past i've always run outside, but of course once the sidewalks get covered in snow and ice my running stops and in the spring I start from scratch again. Well last fall he brought home this treadmill. Perfect for me for 3 reasons - 1.I'm a mother so i can't leave the house whenever, 2. I live in NEPA and the winters are long, and 3. I've recently really wanted to start running as a hobby.
The thing about a treadmill is - It's perfect b/c I can still run all year long. But my treadmill is located down in the deeps of our unfinished grimy basement, with nothing to look at or see except a wall that has the dry wall falling down and the furnace. I am a very competitive person when it comes to athletics so i can never just have a leisurely run. I'm constantly looking at the time and the distance and the pace and am always trying to push myself more, beat the time I had before, and go a little farther than the last time. I can't just have a nice jog.
But all this to say, I'm really thankful for something, and once spring comes, I will be going outside. :) Maybe I'll start training for my next big goal of running in a 10K. :)
