Beating the treadmill

Once again today I beat the dreaded treadmill. After starting my third 24 hr. shift in a row, I decided I had to get moving and get some training miles in. With the Ipod cranked up I thought that I would try covering up the mileage counter. It worked! In no time I had plodded out 5 miles with a minimum of boredom. And I did it during rush hour. For fifty golden minutes I was left alone to tread obediently. It had started raining earlier in the afternoon and I knew the car accidents would be coming. They did, in the middle of dinner and into the evening. But I was complete. My day was made. I will sleep without runners guilt tonight.
