Hey guys! I decided to start uploading sneak peeks of the upcoming chapters of Treadmill whenever I make a new update on Wattpad. So here is the sneak peek of Chapter IX.II, to read after you've ready IX.I, which is up on Wattpad right now!
Saturday morning came so quickly after Wednesday night that Rebecca was pretty sure the middle two days didn't even happen at all.

The guys bench pressing more than they should have been, the girls with perfect form who made Rebecca wish she knew how to work out at all besides running on a treadmill and thinking about eating donuts when she was finished.
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready,
She needed a new playlist: 'I am running.' Maybe it would help her feel like she wasn't considering a basic run to be a full workout. Something about that felt like cheating.
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin',
Rebecca looked in the mirror until she saw a familiar face appear beside her, grinning slightly as she watched the other girl run.

Check out Chapter IX.II on Thursday!
