These fast girls run on treadmills!
CHRISTINE CLARK famously trained almost exclusively on a treadmill in her basement to prepare for the 2000 Olympic Marathon Trials, which she won in a time of 2:38.
MAGDALENA LEWY BOULET started running indoors after the birth of her son. The Olympian now trains on a treadmill one or two days a week and takes advantage of the incline settings to do hill work.
