I confronted my fear. I looked the treadmill in the eye and stepped up. (Deep breath) I pressed the go button and….nothing. I pressed another button and….nothing. Perplexed. I looked to the guy to the right of me and he looked away. Well thanks nice guy. (Really big deep breath) Ding ding ding the emergency stop was pulled out. Don’t laugh, I was really nervous. I pushed it back in and (boom) started walking on the treadmill. It took fifteen minutes of tedious walking to pull out the courage to run. But I did it. I ran on the treadmill and I am still standing, still alive to tell the story.

Next goal is to run the indoor track…
