Distance running, south Florida style, sometimes drives us semi-heat intolerant former northerners to treadmills, aka dreadmills. Oh sure, you do your long run on them and have climate control and handy restrooms but the boredom factor is huge. Each treadmill at my local Lifestyles is equipped with its own personal television and each television has three music video channels. I think right now they are running channels like Current Hits, Hits from Various Olden Tymes, and Hits from the 80’s. These, combined with the Discovery Channel (although Dr. G and her cadavers can lead to some anxiety) keep me happy during my weekly long dreadmill runs.
And my brain keeps up a crazy running commentary during the videos, a bit Bevis & Butthead but hopefully a touch more intelligent. It was during Rick James “Superfreak” that I thought “oh hey, sweat and glitter” that would be a great band name. I’m in no danger of ever starting a band but I can start a blog. Here it is.
