Zyxst how about snow shovelling?

@Urbanmule: I run for a little over a year now. Did a 5K in spring of 2011 (finished somewhere around 35 min), then had a summer long hiatus, and took it up again, to have another hiatus for December of last year.

The past 1.5 weeks I've run (ran?) 8 miles.

So you could say I've started over from scratch again, with a little bit of past running foundation to help me along.

The main goal is to expand towards running further distances more often, instead of faster times.

While I'm not having any aches or pains, I am however prone to developping a nagging headache when I run. (sunglasses help a bit, as does drinking more water, and I think my new supercushioned shoes are also beneficial against this annoying side effect)

I have one very long term goal: running a marathon. In 2014 I turn 40 and I think it would we awesome to start that new decade off with succesfully completing a marathon
