    I've recently started running! I love it! Knowing I can push my body faster and farther everyday gives me so much strength(Mental and Physical)!

    Runner here as well. I can run up to 10k. I love long distance running for endurance, I haven't been able to now because of the heat and humidity I feel like I'm going to pass out. I have a treadmill at home but its not the same. I also enjoy extremely fast sprints or short distances at 8-9 mph to burn more calories like running a mile in 7 minutes. I was running up to 50 miles a week. Lost a ton of weight but my knees were taking a huge toll. Now I do Insanity 6 days a week and run 3-4 days about 20 miles a week. Have a few 5k runs planned and a 10k as well. Long live the shin splints and bengay for the knees.

    I am a runner in need of support - being pushed and held accountable.
  • I'm getting back into running after a long hiatus. From there, I want to move on to triathlons. Add me if you wish!

    I love to run. Have ran a ton of races in the last 4 years ranging from a full marathon down to a main street mile. Anyone who wishes can send me a friend request.

    I started running almost a year ago when I signed up for MFP, and just today raced my first half marathon! Feel free to add me, I love to see how other people train and I'm excellent at cheering on my friends on here. :D

    This thread was old I hesitated on replying, but hey, I'm a trend follower! lol :)

    I would love more running friends on here; feel free to add me.

    I've only run 5ks and 1 10k but next year want to run a half. I know I need to work on my food and strength training, so any help and encouragement with those aspects would be great! And I think I'm a pretty good motivator and encourager myself... ;)

    You can add me if you'd like. I run 2-3 times a week... anywhere from 5k-17k at this point. Will be doing a series of obstacle runs this year including Tough Mudder and Spartan Beast. My road racing has progressed to trails, but the majority of my runs are still on pavement.

    Hello! I started running in January, I did my first 10K in March, and I just started training for my first half marathon in August, I'm so excited! :D
  • Everyone is welcome to add me :). I ran my first 5k this year, I have a 10k scheduled June 1st and a half marathon on September 8th :)

    Never considered myself a runner before, but it has changed my life!

    Just ran my second 5k race last weekend. Been running a couple 5ks per week training. Now training for a sprint triathalon (hopefully) in July. I am new to this too and welcome friends who are runners or new into running.
