Hi all! I've been a 'runner' for about 2&1/2 years. I completed my first ultra marathon this past fall and have since been LAZY!
I am back though. I'm running again...only 10 miles per week, but will increase as the ice and snow melt. Two suggestions: 1) If you are looking to run for many years (I enjoy it and plan to run until bedridden) then you should run trails. Roads and treadmills will shorten your running career. 2) Buy the book 'The Runners Book of Daily Inspiration', it's great with one quote and small essay for each day of the year. The book encourages people to run for enjoyment and for a lifetime, be it 1 mile a day or 100 mile races. I don't run every day, but run most days and find that the shorter runs more often make me a better/happier person. Good Luck to you all!
