UPDATE: As of 4:30 today, we are the proud owner of a LifeSpan 3000i treadmill! I can’t wait for it to get here and get setup! I figure every mile I run on it, will be a mile I wasn’t able to run before! Thanks for all the encouragement and support!!
I’ve had it up to here. (Ok, this might be a rant more than a blog post but follow me..)
Call me impatient, call me antsy…call me whatever but I can no longer live without a treadmill in my home. Every time I try to get out for a run, something happens that keeps me in the house. There have been so many times over the past couple weeks where I could have gotten a run (even a small one) in if I had a treadmill in the house.
I’ve been holding off because I know that a good treadmill can be pretty costly and I don’t really want to spend that kind of money right now. I have been scouring Craigslist for a good used one but have not had any luck and I’m sick of waiting.
I need options and knowing that I can run whenever I want…like now if I wanted to is something I need.
I don’t feel like myself much right now. It’s all about the kids, which is fine, but I need something of my own to grasp on to and running is that thing for me.
We talk a lot about priorities but I’ve never felt so strongly about something. Yes, I’ll stay up late rocking a newborn…I’ll wrangle a smelly toddler into the bathtub…I’ll cook a good dinner but at some point, something has to give. I need something for “me” during the day and I don’t think 30 minutes on a treadmill is asking too much but it’s just not possible right now.
So I’m going to change that. I’m going to bite the bullet and invest in ME! And I think, I might be wrong, but I think by doing so, I’m gonna be a better version of myself. The version I’m happy with. The version I know I can be and more importantly, the version I WANT to be.
Wow,..not sure where that all came from. But you can see, I’m passionate about a treadmill. 🙂 Any fine sponsors out there want to send me one?!
What? Crickets?…. That’s what I thought…
Ok, I’ll do it myself.
