Aloha! I'm at Hawaii Pacific University in downtown Honolulu.

Sports Studies, eh? I wrote a paper a few years back about stadium naming rights agreements. That was an interesting topic to research!
Comment by JLacy on November 19, 2008 at 12:10pm
Mostly on the sports medicine side of sport studies, although I am teaching senior seminar in January

Ah... I teach management and information technology courses.

Ahh... at home in academia! (smiles)
Okay, here are my demograpics...
I'm a Coordinator in the Office of Human Relations Programs at UM (College Park). We are the education, compliance and diversity training arm of the President's Office. We are a small unit, but have campus-wide responsibilty to provide services.

Bill - that naming rights issue sounds interesting.

JLacy - I can see how this (treadmilling while working) totally makes sense to you, given your background. Have you convinced anyone else to take it on?

Mary I am on sabbatical and discovered this in mid-September (you can check out my blog at projecttreadmilldesk.blogspot.com). I return in January and will take my new treadmill back to work with me. I will continue to share an office through the year, but then in August we move into our newly renovated building so I should be all set. My office mate is excited to use the desk when I am not at work.

My office mate wants a stairstepper or treadmill, too!
Comment by JLacy on November 20, 2008 at 7:40pm
Isn't it hard to talk on the phone or type when you are on the stepper?
Comment by Bill Sodeman on November 20, 2008 at 8:03pm
I step very slowly, so it's isn't difficult at all. I'll post a better picture soon, but this stepper is smaller than a book box.
