I've heard that if you have the treadmill speed up high enough, it makes 
"running" easier.

I'm sure the next discussion will be the optimum speed in mph for "running" 

Of course, this kind of operating style will probably be seen by some as an 
unfair advantage and we'll have to create a new entry category called SO2RTM 
(looks suspiciously like a SP call).

And the RFI reflector will be full of posts on how to suppress the RFI from 
the motor drive electronics in the treadmill.
