Runner's Hell

Maybe not everyone thinks so, but I cannot think of a worse fate than being forced to routinely run, not on a treadmill, but on an indoor track. At 200m in length, it requires 8 trips around to complete one mile. That's 40 laps for a 5 mile run. At least on a treadmill you get to see lights flashing, a clock ticking, a mileage counter moving, and if you've got decent bodily control you can watch T.V. The local 'Y' typically feeds in SportCenter, CNN, or Dr. Phil. Okay I might opt for the indoor track over Dr. Phil.
