Way to go, i hope i can get to running that much, how long did it take you to build up to that distance? I normally run a 5K every time I go…

Congrats! I may have to pick up that book! I love running. I haven’t been doing it much lately because Fiance and I are doing the Insanity workout right now and that just wears me out!

I did do a half marathon a few weeks ago. They are so much fun. And honestly, if you ran 8 miles, you can run 13. It really is so mental. The first time I did a half marathon, I’d never ran over 7 miles and I ran the whole thing.

Cute pic too! : )

You go gal! I’m not a runner so I’m impressed when people can run this far!

It’s true.  I read the book and thought I could run 100 miles!  Actually doing it was a different story.  I only made it to about 4 miles but I was running with no music for a while and it was very peaceful.

good for you! You can definitely do a half marathon this october. There are many guides you can follow. Doesn’t it feel so good?

Just wanted to say, I bought Born to Run after reading your and other glowing reviews and I’m enjoying it so far! The guy is a great writer, and I can really empathize. I’ve always wanted to be a runner, and I do run regularly, but sometimes I just lack motivation. I’m hoping to find some inspiration!

Hm, interesting. I think running is such a great workout, but my joints feel it (wow I sound so old, but only 28…just a lifetime of basketball put a beating on my legs I’m sure) after a few days straight, so I usually have to keep it to two or three times a week. I spin or do the elliptical in between. I did 5 miles the other day in just over 40 minutes and it was SOOOOOO hard. Like I didn’t know if I could get through the last mile. So I will be picking up that book for sure!
