My New Treadmill

Treadmill

The Race series win provided a sweet prize – some money that I put towards a new training tool!  I have been longing for a treadmill for years – and here it is.  My wonderful new training machine -Read my Livestrong Treadmill – LS8.OT Review–  for those track workouts that I cannot safely do at 5:30am outside anymore.  During the track workout I did last week, I was running blind on half of the track, as there were no lights on the back side of the track.  A little dangerous.

I also remember the day last winter when I fell at about 600m into my run on some black ice.  I hobbled home disoriented after walking to meet a training partner.  I ended up with a concussion and my training buddies all received multiple wounds on that run, not heeding my warning to turn back home after my initial fall.

What has surprised me is how much the rest of my family is using the treadmill!  My 8 year old son ran for 40 min straight after we had set it up!  My daughter has agreed to run twice a week to increase her fitness for her dance – her real passion.  She is choosing the treadmill over outside running (the television may have something to do with this decision).

About Janine Moffett

I am a mother of three incredible children, work full time as an instructor therapist, and love to run. I have run 11 marathons, with a personal best of 2:57. This past April I ran my third Boston Marathon. I love challenges and began exploring the world of triathlons in 2014. I completed my first half Ironman at Muskoka in fall 2014 and came first in my age group. Now I am taking on the challenge of a Full Ironman, which I am planning for September, 2015. I believe we need to keep trying new things and embrace life to the fullest. I hope I can provide inspiration and insights to others.
