What a difference a song makes

I hate treadmills. What could be more boring than running and running and getting nowhere?

I’ve tried a few things to spice things up, like (the obvious choice) imagining I’m somewhere else, reading (but it’s too bumpy) and putting Gerrod on a treadmill in front of me so we can pretend that if we run fast enough we’ll actually reach one another (imagine slow motion movie scene), but nothing worked.

But finally I’ve found the solution! Listening to music! Gerrod was kind enough to load some music onto my ipaq so I now have a driving beat to run to, and something that successfully distracts me.

Now I can run 2.6 miles (4.2 kilometres) in 30 minutes, which is a new record for lil old me. It may not sounds far, but keep in mind… I have short legs!
