I hate winter weather. I hate the dreadmill. This is a horrible time of year for me, because the weather is unpredictable and cold. It's not the cold that bothers me, but the fact that I don't know what's under the snow. It could be ice or it could be just fine. I find running on the dreadmill boring and difficult at the same time. It's boring to me because of the lack of scenery. I do a little better when I watch a TV show, but I usually don't last more than 3 miles on it. The dreadmill is challenging for me because I can't automatically adjust my speed. I tend to speed up and slow down when I'm running outside.
A while back, I ran the Indianapolis Jingle Bell Run/Walk 10k. It was an extremely well run event. Everything was so organized and had so many helpful volunteers. My official time was 1:08.01 for the 6.2 miles. So now, I have a new record to break.
