Great article. This really covers the pros and cons of each. I'm clearly in the outdoor running camp. I don't own, nor do I have the room for, a treadmill, lovingly referred to as a dreadmill. I DO NOT wear an MP3 player as I really enjoy the experience of running outside. An MP3 player would be an interference plus a person can't hear cars and other sounds as well when wearing a headset. But if I were to run on a treadmill I would definitely want to be either listening to music or watching a monitor of some sort.
But a treadmill allows you to run when the weather is bad outside. And it allows people to workout without leaving home if they are unable to.
So, really, it's a personal choice. Great article Spark People.
