I recently met Laurence Reed while running on the treadmill at our club in Chicago.

Laurence is university hospital administrator in Iowa City. During our hour or so run (he made me look slow EVEN while recovering from an injury) and talk after he made it abundantly clear to me that he knew A LOT about running and in particular about the makeup of treadmills. He then sent me this list which shows he also has a great sense of humor about running as well.

Yeah- that about sums up running this time of year in “The Windy City”. Nice to meet you Laurence, perhaps we can persuade you to enlighten us with a more serious topic sometime.
