I just got home from an arduous trek. It was rewarding, though. The reason I have treadmills is because you aren't actually accomplishing anything. Yes, you're staying healthy, but that doesn't piece as tangible evidence in my mind. When you're walking outside, the environment changes in subtle ways with every step, and in big ones over the course of a stroll. Besides, having to walk home leaves no opportunity to give up. Maybe if treadmills actually milled grain, I'd be interested.

@KMemzy_ I feel like in treadmills I'm in the matrix. Running in the road is better for my dopamine haha
