You wouldn't think a Microsoft VP would find himself running to catch the bus to work on a regular basis, but at least one of them does. And he would like to see others do the same. Dan Treadwell is a fan of creative commuting.
David Treadwell runs to catch the bus — and with purpose. It's part of his "exercise commute."
A resident of Queen Anne and a vice president at Microsoft in Redmond, Treadwell faces a long daily commute over the car-choked and pedestrian-unfriendly Evergreen Floating Bridge. That makes him seem like the unlikeliest of candidates to choose running as his favored mode of getting to and from work.
Yet, he does it. The bus gets him across the span — but running several miles to and from the bus makes up the exercise portions of his commute.
He started doing this two years ago and has since persuaded a few other commuters to incorporate exercise into their commute at least once or twice a week.
