    OK,OK,OK, I FINALLY BROKE.........

    then why did you order it, if you don't mind me asking? i'm just curious. i didn't order it because i know i won't do it often. my cardio of choice is always running, and i just don't like indoor cardio workouts that much. so, i saved the $ and didn't order it.

    Need running help

    well i've been running for many years and ran many races, and i will just say one thing: all the goos, gels, carbs and sports drinks in the world will not take the place of adequate training. and you cannot expect your body to go from 10 to 15 miles in a week. at long distances (my personal...

    Has PETA lost its mind, or...?
