Calories per pound

The grueling 15 minutes on the treadmill almost caused me to pass out. To my dismay, the display announced that I had burned a paltry 100 calories. How many calories are there per pound of weight anyway? The news, was disheartening, a quick Google search shows that there are a whopping 3,500 calories per pound of weight. Hmmm, according to my calculations, that's 8.75 hours on the treadmill per pound.
