Treadmill Running
Some of you know I do most of my running on the treadmill. My training for two marathons this year were almost exclusively on the mill and I ran my fastest marathon in 8 years this fall. I thought this was an interesting article on one woman's transition to the treadmill.

Breathing Exercise
Here's another thing you can try to work on mastering your breathing. 

I recently learned about an interesting new company based out of Maryland.  The company was started by runners, IronMan finishers, technologists and device geeks.  They have use many of the same devices we use in training and thought there ought to be lower cost options and that they had some needs current technology did not solve.

Their first product, the MilestonePod costs $14.95 and serves two purposes: it attaches to your shoe to track the number of miles run in that shoe and it acts as storage for digital health and emergency contact information.  The idea is that by connecting the device to your laces, and leaving it there, you will have an always on count of the mileage on your shoe.  No more need to wait until your knee hurts to replace a shoe or to replace the shoe too early.  And, because the device remains on the shoe you will always have your emergency contact information with you - ever forget your bracelet?

The company has pre-launched the product, information can be found here - Milestone on Indiegogo .  For just $15 you can pre-order a Pod and help a local company get started.
