Anyway, back to the point of my story. The other night I went running on a pretty well lit sidewalk, but the area is pretty desolate. It gave me the creeps and it was only 5:00 pm. We decided to join the local YMCA, it will make things easier for everyone. EB and I can exercise, while the kids take swimming lessons, art classes or any number of other things. I won't have to be afraid of the dark and I can run any time between 5 am and 10 pm. I also won't have to worry about slipping on the ice, in the great north here.
Last night I went for the first time. I went up to the treadmills/track area. They have a 30 minute limit on the cardio equipment so I thought I run on the treadmill for a while and then on the track. Get this.... the track is 1/17th of a mile.
Yes that is right. 1/17th of a mile.
If I want to do a 20 mile training run I will need to run 340 laps.
I am not sure who will lose their mind first, me trying to count all those laps or those people who have to watch me go by 340 times.
I hope we have a mild winter.
