Thoughts...

So lately it seems that running on the treadmill is easier than running outside..>GASP! For one...its usually unreasonably cold outside. My second reason is...now I'm living back home where I grew up (small town). I suddenly realize that going on a 6 mile run means running a loop around the ENTIRE city. The city that when I was younger...seemed like a pretty big place. The city that sometimes my parents complained about driving me to the other side to go to a friends house. So as you can imagine...mentally gearing up for a run around the entire city multiple times a week is pretty taxing on the mind. However....jumping on the treadmill for 40-50 minutes doesn't seem bad at all. Not to mention...the treadmill keeps me on pace..and keeps me getting faster. I find myself running slower paces lately outside. Sooooooooooo......unless I have people to run with....for now....treadmill it is for me. I tend to go in cycles of loving outside..then loving the treadmill..then loving the track...etc. Right now its a treadmill cycle and I'm goin with it!

Stay tuned for the HotPants Stationary Race...."Where you don't have to go anywhere...to get somewhere" haha....Treadmillin it 13.1 baby!
