A buddy would be great. Anyone know how to run, talk football, and win the WSOP? Does such a person exist? Ha!<br><br>
I'd gladly settle for someone just willing to encourage me to stay on track with workouts, give me tips, and help me make sense of my ability level.

So have their been any mentor/mentee assignments?<br>
Again, I've only been running about a year, so I'm still new, but I wouldn't mind encouraging someone to keep on keeping on.

I'll happily give loads of advice - not saying it's worth anything at all, but I've made lots of mistakes in the years I've been running.

I am always open for encouraging and being encouraged. I returning to running after being off for a while. I don't have the great pedigree that some folks here have, but I am positive and optimistic, with a bit of humor.<br><br>
LSU, You might find more conversation about football if you followed a Florida college team. At least you could talk about recent arrests.

We seem to have our share of recent arrest... Odom and "several other players" which haven't been named involved in an incident.<br><br>
I was just thinking... Goodness, you're college athletes, why would you be so stupid when you've got a shot at doing something great in your sport and you've been training so hard?

Me! I do! I'm trying to increase from 3 miles per run to 5-6 miles per run. I mostly run on the treadmill, and I usually run 3-4 times a week with some yoga and weight work thrown in there too.<br><br>
I'm a 50-ish woman and would like to pair up with someone similar. I'd really like some advice & encouragement & motivation.<br><br>
Thanks!<br>

Keep pushing the wrong button sorry. I'm typing in the dark. My 8yr old daughter fell asleep next to me. Anyway... I'd love to have a mentor. I'm a 40ish female too. I've been running since June. I finished the C25K program and have been running a little more than 9miles a week for the last four weeks. If it wasn't for my iPod, I don't think I'd be able to do it. A mentor would be great! Of course I have to run at 4:30am otherwise, I don't run at all.

I'm very new to running, and would love a mentor. I'm 53, in decent (non-running) shape from walking and strength workouts. Been running 2 months, but can only run 2 minutes or so before walking. I run 3 times a week with cross-training twice a week. I rest 1 or 2 days. I'd like to run a 10k in May 08.<br><br>
If anyone would like to encourage, offer advice, cajole or browbeat, please PM me. <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif">Thanks!

I'd love to mentor someone(s). I'm 35, been a runner for about two years, have 1 marathon to my name (training for next one), a handful of shorter races and have lost over 65 pounds. Right now I'm working on getting as fast as I can. This sport has meant so much to me, I'd love the opportunity to help another develop a relationship with this sport.

Hi all - I'm happy to help out as a mentor. I've been running for 5.5 years now - 10 marathons, ~ 20 halfs, etc.<br><br>
I don't do any heart rate stuff, so I can't really be helpful with that.<br><br>
PM as you see fit

Hi everyone - As the co-creator of the C25K a long while back, I guess I have a history, and also helped a lot with the Adopt A Newbie Programme at "another" place in years gone by. Have managed to move a lot of people on from graduation to race improvements, so I'm willing to take on anyone who wants to improve their running and needs a helping hand at times - PM me anytime <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

I would love to have a mentor. I used to hang with the 30's group over on coolrunning and went looking for them again recently. That's how I found this place.<br><br>
I fell in love with running when I started the C25K program back this past December. Hurt my knees then hurt my back. I'm back in shape and ready to run. I'm hoping to do it the right way this time.<br><br>
Desparately needing someone to give me advice on how to fit in running, what surfaces are best to run on, etc. My goal is to run a minimum of a 5K by May 4th and hoping for a 10k.<br><br>
AND.....if you like hockey....bonus!!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I would love to have a mentor as well. Been running for about 18 months, and just finished my second marathon. First one was a disaster, the second was much better (4:14). I'm looking at running a spring marathon, and am working on running slowly in order to get faster! Would love to BQ (3:45) sometime in the next few years, and would love any advice or suggestions from those that are more experienced.<br>
