The treadmill has been purchased and set up. My husband and I chose a model that folds up in order to hide it away. It now resides in the closet in my children’s playroom with a bungee cord for reinforcement (because I am paranoid that way). Why start on a treadmill when the outdoors are way more economical and much more interesting? Well, I live in a mountain and prefer to start indoors until I am ready to tackle the hills of Hopatcong. One step at a time. I absolutely plan to eventually hit the great outdoors by the beginning of fall when the humidity in New Jersey lets up and is more predictable. Who am I kidding!? The weather in New Jersey is never all that predictable.
