    1 Km

    Today i ran two times. The firs time, i managed to run 1 Km in 3:43.47 (3 mins and 43 seconds). Then i ran one more time 1 Km and beat the record to 2:30.87 (2 mins and a half). I could not believe myself! So I decided to go home and eat something and return to the 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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    I love the natural high I feel

    when I run, it's awesome. I do track at school and I'm the best sprinter that represents my school. My specialties are the 100M and the 200M. I'm still great at the 400M, but I'm not that good when you get to distances farther than that. I do long distance runs when I train, but...

    Not So Much.

    I like the results, not the running. (I hate how it adds you to groups when you share an experience, even if you already listed the group as a goal.)

    I love jogging in the back of our cornfield.

    I try to get at least two miles in every day, I'm fortunate to live right next to the Iowa River. The scenery is unbelievably beautiful and i can't help but admit that it is beyond the best stress reliever. I ruptured my ACL last year and it took the better part of almost a year...

    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.

    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!
