I think it's safe to say you need a new pair of running shoes. ;) If you're running in shoes that old, you could really benefit from a properly fitted pair of running shoes from a running store. It will prevent injuries; the most important tool a walker or runner has is their shoes!

chunks, definitely not, but black dust under the belt is very very common and normal.

I don't think so, no. I'd have it serviced if possible. How old is it? It may be dry rotting.

Hi everyone, so I just got a new treadmill about a week ago and chunks of rubber are coming off after I do a workout. Sometimes its just a light black specks but today it was like 3 chunks of rubber..... is this spose to happen. My dad has a bike and it happens to his but I just wanted to see what others think..... I hope im not breaking it.
