Hi everyone! I am new to Kickrunners and just wanted to introduce myself. I am a fairly new runner - 6 months and am doing around 3-4 miles a day 4 times a week. Goal is to do a half next year, so I am slowly uping my miles. Have fallen in love with running and what it has done for my body and most especially my outlook on everyday life.<br>
I look forward to joining your conversations!

Hi there! I'm a new runner too. I mostly run 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym between 3-4 times a week. My goal is to increase to 5-8 miles on a consistent basis. I live in NY with my husband & 2 dogs. Are you Alex? Or Bob?<br><br>

Hey Alex, welcome.<br><br>
Just in case, let me encourage you to not be even a little intimidated by runners here who are more experienced or faster than you are. The atmosphere is always welcoming and the person who is running several 100 mile races this year is going to be excited for you that you managed to have a good 4 mile run today.<br><br>
I know I've been helped tremendously in my motivation. Seeing a single mom have the drive to get up at 3AM to go for a training run so she'll do well in a race lets me see the passion others have for running. I've been able to feed off that and make myself a better runner.
