  1. you are amazing – great running record and several while pregnant!! just wanted to ask what type of treadmill do you have? we’ve been contemplating buying a treadmill for a few months but want to balance quality with price. any advice you have is welcome! thanks!

    • Thanks! We invested in our treadmill back in ’09. After research and also a tread in our “affordable” price range, we went with the Sole F80. Honestly, I love it. We needed something very sturdy since it snows out here during the winter. I also knew once I got pregnant, winter runs would be indoors for fear of falling. I’m already clumsy… I think we purchased it for under $1,000 and they installed it too. My girlfriend just got a Nordic Track (Sp?) for $800 and my other girlfriend got a Proform. I’m not sure how Proforms are, but the Nordics have to be pretty good. Let me know if there’s anything else I could help with. I think it’s a great investment though. Especially if you have a little one at home. ;o)
