    In your defense Maggie, Galen Rupp is a 26 year old that looks like a 14 year old to everyone else, too.

    I used one of these things at the local Y.  The only exercise I could ever really stand was running, but my knees won’t let me pound the pavement. The underwater treadmill was interesting. I liked it!  Need to get back to it, but they are very popular and you have to sign up in advance for a 20 minute slot, so it isn’t terribly convenient.

    Actually that looks really fun.

    Notice how it’s never just an underwater treadmill, but always “The HydroWorx ™ Underwater Treadmill”? Also the “Nike Oregon Project”.

    Maybe the trailer a few slots up is accurate…

    I didn’t know Nike Distance Running was an Olympic event.

    I’m guessing you don’t run? This looks great and I wish I had access to it.

    What if that big monitor (on castors!) fell into the pool?!

    Galen Rupp is the US champion at 5000 and 10,000 meters. So maybe there’s something to this?
