    My Habits When Running

    I ha e noticed there are some things I always do when I run, so I wanted to share and ask if any other runners have some habits and what they are! For me it's basically two things. When I'm getting tired or feel like I'm wanting to stop, I move my hands in a way that would...

    I run every day. It feels

    so good. The wind in your face, the world zooming by. Just the feeling of being fast is such a nice feeling. I wish i could run all day

    Compulse

    Running is like second nature to me. I used to run everyday, just for fun. See how close to flying I could get...I only run every other day now, to balance out my overall training, but I still do it more for kicks than for purposeful exercise.It really opens up the energy centres...

    Red Hook 5k

    Over Memorial day weekend I ran in the Red Hook 5k. I have been running for 15 years. I had to stop running about 2 1/2 years ago due to degenerative disk disease. Oh the pain was unbearable. My Dr told me to stop running and take up biking or swimming. I did, for about 1 year...

    Run As Fast As I Can

    Growing up and playing baseball I was never the fastest player out there. But, I was not the slowest. The only reason I got stole bases was my ability to dive and get to the base. But, that's a different story. Recently I have found out that I have a long stride. Like my stride...

    Many years ago during cross country I was

    running a 7:11 mile at my best. Then in track I did a 7:13 at the first meet. By the end of track I did a 6:07! Keep running never stop! There are always improvements to be made!

    Nothing Holdin Me Back.

    When I was born I had a couple issues with my legs and their bones. The dr's told my mother that I would never be able to walk right, and that I would always need help. My mom doesnt believe that kind of stuff, she knows if you have hope, faith, and alot of motivation you can do...

    I have always enjoyed distance running,

    and now that my knees aren't what they used to be, I cannot run every day, but enjoy my runs more than ever. I appreciate them more, especially a run in the springtime when the weather first starts getting warmer. I also detest treadmill running more than ever. When I enter...

    I don't really look like it,

    but I love running. Anytime I can get a run in it's a good thing. I especially love when I can run outdoors. It takes my mind off the actual physical act of running, and I love the fresh air. Running is great mental therapy for me.

    The only running I do is running to the toilet

    I don't do physical exercise because I don't like moving my muscles. At all.

    In My Blood !

    I love running! Always have, always will.... Being of the tall frame that I have, when I was a kid, I was strictly a 100m person...ok, occasionally 200m but that was my forte..... The early 80's was the time of middle distance legends from the UK....Steve Ovette and Seb Coe...

    Training For A Marathon

    I have lost 35 pounds and ran a 20 miler today. I feel great and even some arthritis in my knees seems to have disappeared. My pace is really slow compared to my 20s. I once ran a 4:09 mile shortly after college, but due to a foot injury in 1994, I haven't run very much in the...

    That's Not Exactly True.

    I actually hate running.  It's boring.  I love ice cream more than I hate running though, so I do.  I run up to ten miles at a time, usually more like five.  I like to wear a running skirt when I run to make it more interesting.

    I really wish I liked running

    or could take it up as a hobby but it just seems impossible sometimes. My legs start to hurt or I can't breathe if I run for very long. Any advice or tips to help me perhaps get better at running?

    Running has always been a favorite of mine.

    I used to think that running a mile was impossible. Now that I'm running over three miles a day, I feel awesome! Anything is possible if you put your mind to it! I promise it is. :) I just put in my music and find a rhythm with my legs and music. And I just focus on going...

    I run at least 2-3 times a week.

    Even when it is very hot like 35-40 C. It's not that hard you just need to drink lot of water.

    Sunday! Always a day to stay away from the gym, and all the perverts you can get there. Instead, I run. I vary the distance, but I leave the house (in Eden-Roc, just off rue Paradis, sixieme arrondissement) and run eastwards. I like to go along avenue du Prado towards the Palais...

    When Did This Happen?

    I have always hated running for as long as I can remember. I was always more of a biking kid. In fact, I still am. But that's not the point. By the time I was in 4th grade, we realized I had asthma, but it wasn't until I was passing out in the hospital room in 5th grade that the...

    Rainy Streets

    This morning (Sunday 20th January) I dressed for my run, not for the cold, but for comfort as I covered the distance I decided on. I planned my route before going out. I pulled on my blue boyshorts, blue cotton short ankle socks, my green cotton tee shirt under my dark green Nike...

    Just a Typical Running Story...

    I started running when I was 40 - to lose weight mainly.  I was already going to the gym on a regular basis but was losing interest in aerobics so I didn't really have anything to get my heart rate up.  I got into gradually, by walking first then slowly adding...

    I had surgery in Jan

    after putting up with a hurt foot from doing a 1/2 ironman...now I've decided to put the lack of motivation aside and go back to do the first event I'd ever tried which was a 10k. It's in early Nov so I hope I can get the rust off and build enough of a base to survive!
