Hi Everyone! I thoght it was about time I stopped lurking around the boards and introduced myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I've been running since June when I mentioned to my boss that I had started walking again after giving up excercise in April 2006. He emailed a link to me for the C25K program which I completed. For the last four weeks, I've been running a little more than 9 miles per week. I run in my neighborhood at 4:30 in the am, before work, or I never get it done. Of course it takes almost an hour to finish a 3 mile run. I haven't run in a 5K yet, but I plan on doing it in the spring. So, I'm very glad to meet you all and hope you won't mind my chiming in on different threads now and again.
