Ode to my treadmill

You stay in the basement alone and in the dark until I need you; never complaining you wait patiently. You are old I know (15 years or more now) but you faithfully start up when I ask you too, even though you are a bit rusty from the years when I ignored you and left you in the garage alone for years.

Somehow you knew I would come back; and this year I did! My awesome husband set you up inside and we put a tv in front of you and I learned how to watch movies on my laptop through the tv! Wow it was like a whole new world opened up to me! I used to hate being on you and watched the clock, but now I look forward to you! I find a new movie I haven't seen or an old favorite and can stay down there for 1-2 hours without even much thought about time.

I love you treadmill! You rock!

In fact I think I will come down right now for a visit :-)

My treadmill and elliptical face a big screen TV. Couldn't do it any other way!

Very cute post, Teresa. I love my treadmill too and I don't even hang clothes on it. It doesn't like that.

TOO CUTE!!! And impressive that your beast works after 15 years-I hope my elliptical lasts that long! I'm with Karen, I cannot do it without a TV-in fact I have certain shows that I save for when I am on there-usually weightloss shows like I used to be Fat, Bridelplasty, Biggest loser, Heavy, or short reality shows like Say yes to the dress, Fashion Police, millionaire matchmaker-they have to be shows without any downtime!!! Good for you, ride that beast!

I hope I will get to that stage :( But I am convinced treadmills give me shin splints at the moment :(
