3 miles (treadmill) @ 9:24 min/mile avg. pace
After work I wanted to head out to help a friend buy a new car (it’s fun to car shop with someone else’s money!), so I hit up the treadmill for a quick run beforehand. I typically dread this torture device and found tonight’s experience to be no exception. As I ran on the hamster wheel, I reminded myself it was worth helping a friend. And it was (my killer negotiating skills helped her score a winning deal!).
