Happy 2014- aka the year of the Treadmill

Amazingly Dh agreed to the procurement of a treadmill.  Not a super fancy one, a Horizon Ct5.3 which is equivalent to the T101. Since I'm not a speed demon, I think it will work just fine.  So we had the beast in the house since the 20th of December, but it wasnt until December 31 that it made the trek to the basement. And then a few more days before it was assembled, assessed it was working, lubed the belt etc.
So FINALLY,  took it out for its maiden run this morning. An easy 5K. I didn't use the incline or anything, since my last run was a 10k way back in November. I'm looking forward to running more half's this year and this should help build up my base big time.
Next race- MEC race #1, Jan 18th if the weather is decent.  Now to get a foot pod for my Garmin.

Knitting is going well, finished a hat made out of the Qiviut and LOVE it.
My goal is to try to finish some of the many projects I have in progress, before I start a new one. That means finish: 2 blankets, 2 sweaters, 1 shawl, 1 pair of socks, 1 cowl. whew!
