    Good morning Stephanie! I'm always excited to meet peole who love to run. I've just started running again in the last 3 months. I had stopped early in the year as I was having a left calf problem, but it is good now. I've been running 3 miles clips, but last Saturday I started running 4 miles. So I'm trying to step it up. I have done a few 1/2 and full marathons in the past, but it's been a while. Stephanie, have you ever thought about going that distance? I'd love to be a friend, so we can talk running and anything else.

    Hi there! Feel free to add me. I'm a running junkie as well as doing some cross training. But my goals are all running related. Good luck on your journey!

    Add me if you want/like.
    Lost lots of weight myself and have become a running fool this year. As opposed to the regular fool I have always been! :-)

    OP, got your request! Anyone else can add me too. My goal for this year was to run a 5K without walk breaks, and I did that in July! I was expecting to do that in the fall. Then I revised my goal - run a 10k this fall. I did an 8k race on Sunday, and plan on doing a few 10k's this fall. Next year: half marathon! I am slow, but want to improve that too after I get used to the longer distance.

    I've lost about 48 lbs since February and all with running. I worked up to a 5K at first and now have worked up to 10k. I want to keep running but don't know that I'm interested in a half....but 10k is fine by me :) Would love some running friends to chat running with. I also want to make sure this weight stays gone. I still have more weight to lose but getting there :) I'm interested to know what happens as I get closer to my goal weight and the weight comes off slower....advice is always welcomed.
