    I ran my best 5K on a treadmill today.

    I ran the first 2 miles at 6.7 MPH and 3rd mile at 7.5 MPH and the last .10 mile at 8.0 MPH. The race time was 26 minutes and 32 seconds. It feels like the sky is the limit now if I am patient and shift from 9 minute miles to 8 minute miles to 7 minute 20 second miles. I keep...

    Today I ran on the treadmill

    for a 5K I ran at 6.7 MPH until the last quarter mile that I ran at 8.2 MPH. I finished the race in 27 minutes and 4 seconds. My goal is to stay with 6.7 MPH for my training until April of 2016 - at that time I will run outside and perhaps set a goal for running faster than 9...

    After running I feel like I am breathing the

    freshest air. It may hurt a little while running but its all worth it in the end.

    Been a long distance runner

    for 3 years and it's great. I've never known a different life from running, working out and eating healthy. It was the best life choice :)

    I have been running again

    for over 2 years now. I go to the gym and run on the treadmill 3 or more times each week. I walk for a quarter of a mile then run for 3.1 miles and then walk until my 40 minute work out is done.

    Was running and a bear walked out in front of

    me. It was a bit scary but I screamed and yelled and the bear wasn't interested in blondes anyway.

    Was out bright and early this morning

    for a run - sun wasn't even up! Bit chilly though and hands were freezing... thumbs just about defrosted now! Great for clearing the head though to face the day ahead.

    My Wife Doesn't Like My Running.

    My wife thinks I'll get hurt. She thinks I run to get away from her and the kids. In fact, she dosn't understand that I run to get healthy. I run to be happy for her and the kids. I run because I need to get the stress out and it's better on the trail than coming out of my...

    That feeling. The wind blowing in your face,

    the birds chirping, your legs getting more and more tired as you continue onwards.. the sun beating down on your face, until when you almost reach the end of your destination. That's when you give it your all.. run until your feet feel like they're going to fall off. That pain...

    I ran competitively in school

    and early twenties, then gave it to battle a sickness for many years. Twenty years later, I picked it up again and absolutely love it. Entered one 5k this year and am training for a half marathon right now. So happy to be feeling better :)

    I might wake up early

    and go running but, I also might win the lottery. The odds are about the same.

    Current best time for a 5K on the treadmill 25

    minutes and 24 seconds. 7.3 MPH or 8 minute and 13 second miles. I ran out doors on my own at the rate of 7.2 MPH yesterday, so I thought I would train a little harder on the treadmill, to keep changing the game. I will keep it steady at 7.2 MPH and little bit fast for the rest...
