A view from the top

Distance: 3 miles

The rec center was quite busy today when I got there, and my preferred treadmill was in use. However, it was a friend of mine using it, so I asked how much longer she’d be before taking a seat on the nearby bleachers to mull over my personal statement (which is not getting any better…).

When my friend ended her run, I hopped on to do a nice, slow, 3-mile jog with varying inclines. I must say the treadmill was well worth the wait because the view kept me entertained. On the basketball court below, there were tons of guys waiting to scrimmage – and these guys were of much greater skill than the ones I watched the other day. So, for the duration of my run I got to watch live basketball, some of it sloppy, yes, but at least there weren’t any commercial breaks!

    That would definitely make the dreadmill more interesting, worth waiting for!

    That beats a boring old TV any day. Plus you can join in if they’re short a player. Not sure if you’re any good at b-ball, but at the very least, you could run circles around them.
