I need a treadmill

This morning I woke up anticipating running 4 miles as my first run in my half marathon training. I crawled out of bed and grabbed the dog leash to take our dogs outside. I opened the door and felt the wind smack me in the face and I knew that there was not enough winter running gear in my drawers (possibly even the whole midwest) for me to run outside.

Now begins my hunt for a cheap treadmill!

  1. Best wishes on your search for a treadmill. I don't have one, but the gym is close by. Though for convenience sake, would love to own one. A friend of mine recently bought one I think for around 750 by Golds Gym?

    1. Thanks Kenley! Still looking for a treadmill..I was hoping someone who had one sitting around that didn't use it would see this and would part with their's for cheap, but this is definitely not the time of year that people are willing to part with unused exercise equipment.

  2. Hi, I was wondering if you had found the right treadmill for you. I'm in the process of getting one for myself and I was hoping you would suggest the treadmill which has worked for you. I've read about sole f80 but I'm hoping for a treadmill a bit cheaper than sole f80. Any thoughts on this? Thanks

    1. Now that the weather has turned nice I haven't needed one. Being in the midwest we can run outside most of the year, except winter. It's almost impossible most of winter to get out consistently. Hopefully by the time next winter comes I'll be able to afford a gym membership for the few months I'll have to run inside or at least have a treadmill at home.
