|What I see when I look at a treadmill.|
1. Thunderstorms (I don't wanna die)
2. Heat index >110°F/43°C (Still don't wanna die)
Yeah. That's about it. And #2 I can be flexible on. The only other circumstance is MAYBE if I'm really in a time crunch and can't get a run in otherwise.
I've run in downpours, sweltering temperatures, snow storms (when visiting Cleveland)... anything to avoid feeling like a hamster on a wheel.

TV distraction of choice at the gym:
- News: Yes, the Daily Show counts. I'm a dork and enjoy watching the news. Plus, they often have those scrolly things at the bottom so I can read if there's no closed caption.
- Soccer: I grew up playing soccer, so that's part of it. The only part is... have you seen soccer players!?!? Talk about distraction. (And have I mentioned that Seattle has a MLS soccer team? Talk about making it hard to focus at a new job!)
|Thank you, Vanity Fair, for this lovely distraction. Maybe I should post this over the stop button.|
Might kill my desire to finish early...
What are your thoughts about the treadmill? Necessary evil or just evil? What kind of distractions do you use?
