after much begging, pleading, asking, maybe some whining, some not-so-subtle hints, and a few gentle reminders about long-time promises, my hubby finally delivered and surprised me with a treadmill! and yeah it was a total surprise because i had thrown out any hope for one a while ago. we didn't need it. but i could barely contain my excitement when he showed me, and when i stepped on it for the first time. too nerdy?
everyday at 2:15 this is where you can find me. running in my garage on my treadmill during naptime. i've always been an avid lover of running outside. hitting the pavement and feeling the wind on my face is definitely the best, but after having 2 kids, and with snow on the ground/cold temperatures, i don't always have that option. plus, it feels like it takes me a million years to get them both bundled up, strapped in, and with more snacks...it sometimes doesn't feel worth the trouble! haha. please tell me i'm not the only one that feels this way! it's a glorious afternoon when i put them down for naps now, and walk out to my garage, plug in my earphones and turn on some beats or watch some Netflix.
he lucked out and found one in great shape(like new) for a good deal on Craigslist. it's a Cadence C62, which if you look it up, isn't some all-powerful-amazing-hard-core-running-machine...but that's okay with me, because i'll be running more like 2-5 miles on it a day, 3-4 times a week. heck let's not get ahead of myself, maybe less...haha!
