My Saucony Progrid Ride 4s came today

New models, too! My last 2 pair were Progrid Ride 3s.

These are my 14th and 15th pair of Sauconys...  probably over 5000 miles logged so far in Sauconys.

My son is putting an unknown mileage on my shoes.

You have no idea how this is going to mess up my mileage tracking.

Bought a new treadmill

I was initially thinking of one of the low end TRUE treadmills, or maybe even dreaming of a Landice L7, but I ended up settling on a Sole F80 Treadmill:

p5302128dt

I was able to run (with sock feet) on it for about a minute at up to 7'30" pace.  Very sturdy.  It has a 3 CHP motor, and goes up to 12 mph and 15% incline.  It has the standard hokey 12V fans like on the Star Trac treadmills in the gym (or your home computer), but it also looks to have a nice little set of speakers and other features.  I'm really only hoping to bridge the days when I can't break away to run outside or during lunch, but this little treadmill should also give me the occasional opportunity to run a long run indoors the next time storm debris is littering the streets outside.  The best part was, I only spent half my originally planned amount.
