I do but I have a Blackberry.  We have also bought a treadmill recently so I don't run outside anymore.  It sucks in a way because I love running outside, but I can run many more miles and more often through the week on the machine.  Right now I'm going 3.5 miles in about 31-32 minutes.

I run stairs and hill climb on the bike pretty much 90% of cardio. Wish they had a video screen in front of me where I was racing or trying to keep up with a computer generated runner. That would take it to whole new level.

Has to be available somewhere.

Misfit, I myself, albeit a couple decades ago, was from cold shitty inclimate weather. I love to run, the hotter and most humid temps/lervel the better since I believe that other than mental strength, breathing is almost as important if one gets to the 5-7 miles+ a day routine.

Rickey ....er....Search (Hiya Rickey ) is spot on about running steps....If you can gain access or sneak into a college hoops stadium, concert venue, etc... and run steps during where you live's crap weather months....when the climate gets friendly, you're ahead of the game..

Otherwise, as I used to experience, every year in Ohio, I would go through the hell of getting back in shape for 5-7 weeks before I'd get into my comfort runs.....

Been in great weather spots since '92, so aint a problem anymore.

Rickey, I couldn't maybe run some of the distances I do without an ipod with some great playlists, or at least ones that I like. I will maintain that running any significant routes times etc, is all mental, and the tunes help get the brain straight.

It's the difference between 4 and 7+ miles sometimes for me, since I will maintain 80% of running is all mental....unless you are toting around a lot of body fat of which I am not....

20 yrs ago, back in Ohio, I couldn't run outside in shitty weather (cold-rain-snow), so Aprils always sucked for me also, .....extra 20 pounds over winter, can't breathe in cold air, hack up lungs in temps under 62 degrees, puke in stride, whole 9 yards....
