That's what happens when you run on a treadmill. You run and you run but you don't get anywhere. In case you didn't know.
We just bought a used treadmill this week for a great price and I'm very excited to start using it!! I haven't really had a chance quite yet, but I have tried it out enough to know that I love it. It's up in my sewing room/spare bedroom/office and is right in front of the computer so I can watch tv while I run, an important component.
Carbon has a countdown of uses until she has 'paid off' her treadmill and I think that's a fabulous motivation for myself. My husband has declared that I need to set a goal of how many times per week I will use it and if I don't, I will owe him $5. Yikes. I'd better get to it.
The thing is, right now is the perfect time of year to actually be outside being active. It's perfectly warm and breezy and unbelievably beautiful. Michigan doesn't provide many times like this so I'm trying to take advantage of it. In fact, tomorrow I have a lunch meeting with my mentor and I'm riding my bike the two miles to get there.
Which brings me to something exciting for me. I have a mentor! A few months ago, it was brought up to all of us 'younger' staff members that we could select someone else on staff for mentoring meetings. Tomorrow is our first meeting and I am really looking forward to it. This is a woman whom I have admired as long as I have known her. She has the kindest heart, most genuine care for people, and an excessive amount of wisdom. I only hope she can impart a smidge of that onto me.
