Jane's allergy shot, taxes, treadmill questions...

Jane finally broke down and got an allergy shot at her doctor yesterday. Hopefully that will give her some relief.

We also found out how much our taxes will be for this year. We have to pay quite a bit in federal, but actually get $27 back from the state. Ugh.

And... I found this article about some FAQ's regarding treadmills and running: How to Use a Treadmill. It also had these simple equations for figuring calories burned per mile...
For running (5 mph and higher): Total calories burned per mile = .75 x body weight (in pounds); net calories burned per mile = .63 x weight.
For walking (3 to 4 mph): Total calories burned per mile = .53 x body weight; net calories burned per mile = .30 x weight.
