>Running 101>laying it all out there....(newbie dumb questions)
I've got a fever...
When I am running on the treadmill, I seem to build up a lot of static electricity (noticable when i go to touch a button on the console, fiddle with the ipod, etc).
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
I would make sure your treadmill is not located near your water heater or any other combustibles.

2.) Is there any way to kind of guesstimate what my pace would be like on the actual roadway vs what i am doing on the tread? I always run/walk with nothing less than a 2% incline...is there any harm to this?

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
- I have been dealing with JKs questions for so long, this is no different.
Solid use of the word guesstimate.
That's my input.
- A treadmill set at 1% grade is equivalent to running flat outside in terms of energy expenditure.

I used to think that 0% Earth = 1% treadmill to account for no wind resistance on the 'mill. But JakeKnight kindly pointed out that I was full of shit
