I have determined the following: I would much rather heap on the UnderGear and run outside in the cold than be warm inside and run on a treadmill.

I think the vitamin D from the sunshine is the differentiator.

I would much rather run outside as well. To me it's much more enjoyable to physically travel that 1 mile than to stay in one spot on a treadmill staring at the same thing while I run.

I prefer walking outside... the only downside I see is going too far... there is always the walk back... and if you hurt yourself or get a blister or whatever... you have to make it back home somehow.

I don't own a treadmill.

But I'm really going to miss walking Ender. Damnit I need a dog.

I have mapped all my walking/running routes to be a circle. I hate that walk-to-this-point-and-turn-around thing. You're seeing on the way back all the things you saw on the way TO.

I can't do that ...my circle would be 7 miles and I haven't worked up to that yet :)

Eep! Me, either. Vit D from the sunshine will do me no good whatsoever if my lungs implode.

I'd much rather ride a bike than run for excersise. I do prefer riding outside in the cold than my stationary bike inside.

the problem around here is the ice.. it's just not safe with traffic and slippery roads to be running anywhere.. one slip and you and/or your dog will be paying for some doctor's summer cottage or new car.

Walking outside is fine here during the fall/winter when the weather is nice...but it is miserable in the summer. I'd much rather walk on a treadmill and watch TV than be outside.

I would like to run, but the idea scares me. I've never been a runner. Just seems like something beyond me for some reason. Something that would just do me in.

Would rather shove a dry corn cob up my ass then to do another mile of running - indoors or outdoors!

Must have done 20,000 miles of running while in the military.
