Any other runners out there? I've ran for a number of years, currently I'm in training for my second and 3rd marathons this April (Manchester and London) and have just started doing park run which I love.

    I am kind of a newbie. Have been running/walking since 2012 and am hoping to run my second 1/2 marathon in October.

    I've been running for 6 years. I've done a lot of fun runs and 5k's but I never trained with enough consistency or intensity for something like a marathon. Maybe in the future.

    I only run when the weather is perfect, because I'm a huge wimp and running is sort of hard. When it's too hot I cycle and when it's too cold I walk. :lol:

    Yes, just got interested in running a couple of years ago. I have run 3 half marathons so far and totally love it. I am trying to figure out which ones I want to run this year....not ready for a marathon yet...maybe in 2017. It is helping me lose the last 10 pounds that I need to get to goal.

    More of a cyclist now, but try and get in at least one decent running training cycle per year. Working on dropping those last 15lbs so I can really throw down a mean 5k.

    I started running in September 2015, and ran my first full 5 km parkrun on December 5th.

    I love parkrun, and running!

    The MFP runners hang out in the monthly Running Challenge threads.

    Here is the January thread:

    Hiya! I am a runner - I'm training for a half in May and a 10K in Sept.

    I want to work on getting faster.

    Checkout this group here at MFP forums.

    There are several other running groups here as well but the one I linked to is the most active.

    I'm a new runner, only been running for 6 years. I've done a bunch of 5ks, an 8k and two 10ks. Had to take a year off to recover from a meniscus repair. I'm slowly building up my distance and working towards my first half marathon in November. Sadly, today my knee is sore and I'm feeling frustrated.

    Runner here! Off and on since I was 14! Just starting back, so I'm slow and just a mile at a time. I'm prone to injury, so..taking it easy
