Impatience is a virtue

This week a friend of mine asked if he could borrow my treadmill. Wait. That was a horrible start. I have a 4-in-1 manual treadmill. No, I am not linking to any website, as I don’t do affiliate marketing (yet). I used it regularly for first two months. Then scarcely for next couple of months….
