Another Happy Milestone

I just figured out something amazing this morning. (I am easily amazed these days, so I hope you'll bear with me.)

My treadmill measures distance in miles, not kilometres!

This means the 1.34 "distance" reading on my treadmill actually equals 2.1 km.

This is a big deal to me because, a year or two ago, I could not have walked this distance in any amount of time. I know this because I participated in a 2 km walk for one of my favourite charities and it left me feeling totally winded.

Now I can cover more than that distance -- and I can do so in 30 minutes, with a significant incline on my treadmill -- and think nothing of it.

Yes, I'm feeling pretty pumped.
