    I haven’t run in ages because I didn’t feel comfortable (physically) to run during pregnancy and now that I can workout again it’s cold outside and I love running but for me it’s not a winter thing.

    But man do I miss it! Especially going for a run with Darling Husband, and the kiddos in the stroller. I love that it’s an easy family outing and it feels so good!

    I would love to complete the Disney half marathon one day soon. In the meantime, I have to start over with the couch to 5 K in the spring.

    I HATE running with a passion. I do run sometimes, but I hate every second of it.

    My husband is the exact opposite – he runs 10 miles a day just because he likes to! Isn’t that nuts? He doesn’t compete or train for anything – just runs for fun.

    I used to love it. Raced 10 milers and half marathons. Then it stopped being fun, and I stopped running. I’ve tried to get back into it, but my heart just says no.

    I hurt my knee training for a half marathon. I had no real running experience though prior. I loved it before I hurt myself and then I pushed it too far by actually running it. So now I walk. It’s true what they say about a runner’s high.

    @OnceUponATime:  I only run when it’s running away from something (i.e. roman candles, centipedes, etc).

    @peachacid:  I’m not a runner.  I’m not sure why, but I’ve just never gotten into it the way a lot of other people I know have.  I’ve never run a race, but that is in large part due to my knees.  Every time I try to train for a race my knee winds up giving out and I have to stop.

    I much prefer walking uphill or dance classes (like zumba) for cardio.

    I’ve got a respiratory disorder that cannot be medicated that prevents me from running. I’ve done short 30 second bursts of sprinting which are fun, but I can’t keep it up and it’s not worth the pain. I can walk forever though. In college I averaged 6-7 miles a day getting to class and stuff. These days I commute to work on foot which is about 2 miles away.

    I wish I loved running…but I don’t. I did a half marathon, and that felt great after I did it. But I pretty much never want to run that far again in my life. I prefer keeping it 15k and under.

    For me, running is the devil. 

    I have never enjoyed it, and dont think i ever will. I used to be fit- training for a netball team 3 times a week (2-3 hour sessions) and playing all day saturday- but the running stuff made me want to die. I hate it. 

    I love walking, playing team sports/tennis where the running can be disguised by the fun, competition and social aspects. I’m pretty thin because i changed my diet  seven years ago and have been able to stick to it, and i lost 20 kgs. I figure, if i can eat the right way and keep the weight off, why put myself through the pain of running? haha

    However, i will say kudos to all of you who love running and do marathons and things. You’re all better people than i will ever be ๐Ÿ˜› haha

    I love running for the benefits.  It was also part of my plan to lose weight.  However, I’m not a fan of exercise in general. I do it because the good outweighs the bad.  I ran my first 5k this year, I plan to run a 10k next year, and want to do a half marathon the year after.  After that, I’m done and will continue doing it for maintenance.

    I LOVE running! I’ve done two half marathons this year, one of which I did while 5 months pregnant!

    I want to run the New York Marathon next November. My baby will be 8-9 months old then… Plenty of training time!

    Run? Me? Run? Bwahahahaha, stop it, you’re killing me! Laughing

    I hate, hate, hate running, always have, always will. I have nothing against exercise but I absolutely detest all sorts of running, it disgusted me even at my fittest (and I was very fit a few years ago… where did that motivation go? Urgh).

    Oh, and my left shoulder hurts when I run, it started when I was about 12 and never went away. I even asked my doctor about it because I was worried there might be something wrong. She checked me out thoroughly but couldn’t find the reason for it, my back and all joints seemed to be fine. In the end she asked me if I enjoyed running – if I said yes, she’s perform some additional tests. When I told her I hated it she just laughed and told me something like “well, great, no harm done there!” ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love running. It is my favorite stress reliever! But I am an outdoor runner, I really hate the tread mill. I’ve been running 10 mile races for the past 5 years. I ran my first half marathon this past June and it got me in the best shape I’ve ever been in. I had people commenting on how great my arms and back looked (a bit weird to comment on) which I never thought would get toned from running. My problem is that I love running and only running so I have been trying to incorporate other exercises and weights to be more balanced. I plan to run the same half this year to get in shape for my June wedding!
