    Did 4 miles this morning at a mild but consistent pace. It was my longest run in quite some time and I hope to slowly add more distance this month. Felt good enough afterwards to mow the lawn. I see a nap in my future.

    Nice running. Taking it easy adding miles sounds like a great idea to me.

    I'd like to join in! I'm very new to running so my goal will be quite low. I'm still completing C25K and I did about 32 total miles in September, including walking warm ups and cool downs. If it's okay, I think I'll continue tracking total miles.

    October goals:
    Complete C25K
    Run a 5k (28Oct - haven't registered yet, a little gun shy)
    40 total miles

    Welcome! go ahead and register for the 5k, you'll be ready when the time comes. Finishing C25K is a great goal, and your mileage goal is very reasonable. you got this!

    I agree go register!

    One of my friends got me on the phone this morning so it was in the low 70s and sunny by the time I got out there, but a nice breeze was blowing so it was okay. Only downfall was about mile 5 I started to feel like I was running out of steam. Then I remembered I ate dinner at like 4 yesterday afternoon and it was 10:00 am and I hadn't eaten anything.

    @eponine1984 you sign up for your 5K on the 28th and I’ll pull the trigger on the one I’ve been looking at here. My friends want to run it in costumes which is so not my thing, but yesterday I picked up something to wear.
    @jvcinv fantastic weight loss – congrats
    @ddmom0811 ouchie calves
    @elise4270 I'm sorry you missed your race
    @PastorVincent great distance PR
