I guess it's not in the cards...

Happy Valentine's Day!
We've been wanting to get a treadmill (a freemotion fitness 750 treadmill, to be exact) for a while now, but each time we get the itch we either don't have the money and it's on sale with a 10% (or more) coupon or we have the money and it's not on sale. 

Today it looked like everything was lining up for us to get it if we REALLY wanted to. That was until I clicked the link for the 10% coupon and it was ONLY for online purchases. UGH! Then things started to unravel... Jason can't help me lift the treadmill to put it together (duh!) and to get them to install it would negate the whole 10% off coupon. The basement is a mess and the price is still $100 more than we had seen in the past.

We've just come to the conclusion that right now, getting a treadmill just isn't in the cards. I guess the money would be better spent paying off debt. We're almost there... I guess we'll just have to wait until we're completely out and then get one. 

While I was getting all upset about the stupid coupon in my inbox, I came across my friend Amy's message... "did you run already today? just reminding you that you promised you would...."

How could I not run after that?! I laced up my shoes and headed out the door. 

Thanks, Amy for the kick in the butt. ;)

My run was pretty good today. I was determined not to stop, I got 2 miles in and then my mom started texting me from Africa. I had to reply. Haha!

I keep feeling really weak when I run. My legs feel SO heavy. I don't know what it is. I gotta get to the bottom of that. 

I did pretty well today. My goal was to run it under 45 minutes and I did it in 44! Yay!

Tomorrow is another 4 miles. I hope to do it early, but you know how that goes....

Paying off debt is always a good choice... but you do realize you could buy a treadmill on amazon for a couple hundred, right? Ours works perfectly fine for 350 from CL... and it's been 2 years. Just a thought. Love you! Keep up the awesome good work!
