Overcoming boredom on the treadmill

I can't say I was looking forward to this morning's run.  As I set my alarm last night, I envisioned a very LONG 5 miles staring at the basement wall.  However, once I was on the 'mill, I played my favorite songs and found myself drifting away mentally so that I was not just staring at the slow crawl of the mileage meter.  It was springtime and I was outside.  It was warm and sunny and bore no relation to the reality of my surroundings.  By mile 3 I knew I would have no problems finishing!

MIND OVER MATTER.  Or as I read somewhere lately, run with your heart, not your mind.  Love it!
