Chickening out

ORN: 5 miles, 60 min, 5/1

OK, I need to confess. I just didn't have the will to run outside today. I tried. I was dressed and OUT the door. Less than a block from my apartment I turned around, went home, got the car keys, and went to the gym. Today, I ran on the treadmill for the first time since last winter.

To be clear, it was below freezing AND windy [wind chill, 20 degrees!!!] I just wasn't ready to face winter yet. Maybe later!

It was a good run, though. I've forgotten how much I enjoy the treadmill. Good run. Nice pace. iPod in place!!

Waddle on, friends.

At least you ran! Chickening out would have been getting in your car and driving to Starbucks instead of the gym.

John, what do you listen to on your iPod
(when you are safely indoors with no oncoming cars and attackers...or weiner dogs? )

I'd be interested for anyone who wants to, to weigh in on listening preferences.
