The best thing since sliced bread...

I have been working very hard and saving for a long time for this:

Oh my gosh! I love it soooo much. It was delivered to our garage meaning my husband and I had to transport 350 lbs inside a too tiny doorway at 9pm on Friday. After 3 hours and 2 doors taken off the hinges it was finally inside!
Sooooo exciting.
I played with the computer for a little, decided it was way too advanced for me and made it to sleep around 2 am. I woke up at 6:30 the next morning for my first run on the new tread!
I ran 16 miles @9:15 pace. The fan is amazing as you speed up, it speeds up. It has a port for your iphone/pod and really good speakers, my family loves hearing me blast Pitbull and Kesha at 7 am! This thing has an incline up to 15% (didn't make it nearly that high) and a 3% decline. Holy quads batman!
It came with a heart rate strap, which I used, it gave continuous feedback of my heart rate on the screen, I loved that. I didn't use the internet at all or any of the cool ifit features, I've yet to figure all of that out.
So other than finally getting my treadmill, not much is going on.
I've been working non-stop. My kids are going a bit stir crazy. By the time it's cool enough to play outside, it's literally bedtime. I've got plans to take them to the children's museum this week, I think they will love it.
My running has been o.k. I'm getting my runs in (for the most part) but they feel much harder than they should.
Oh and the Yankees blew it in the 9th than the 10th last night! Not a good way to start the week.

What running shoes do you wear? I'm almost in the market for new ones.

Are you a neutral runner, overpronater, underpronater?
