Now that I have the right sneakers for running (thanks Kruss), my shins do not hurt at all. I see the reason for good sneakers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> now. I am going to pick up the pace on training for my first 5K, currently on week 5 of the CPto5K. Not sure if I will beyond that as I am hooked on running, but to the same degree on kickboxing.. definitely both give me an rush.<br><br>
Hopefully I will be ready for a 5k in February of next year, so wish me luck.<br><br>
This is my first post in the 30s club although I have been on Kickrunners for some time now. I am 37, but because of running and the kickboxing I feel like I am in my 20s again... gotta love it.<br><br>
Happy Friday to all.

Thanks Theia and lgreenberg. I am in Northern NJ in Passaic County. The town is Pompton Lakes. Not too from NYC, but a nice feel for the country. I grew up close to Albany, so I definitely have a love for the country, but I also like the closeness to NYC.<br><br>
Where in NJ are you from Theia?

I'm nearby in Delaware, but I have lots of family in central NJ. There are a few folks from NJ in the 30s group that I'm sure you'll meet soon!

Look forward to it. Delaware is very nice, I would really love to live outside Philly. Have a great weekend and thanks again for your support.

Hey runningINnyc, nice to meet you... I work in Lyndhurst (I will soon be moving to Secaucus) so I can see the Hudson from here. Have a great weekend.

Hey CoachT, I grew up in a town called Valatie near the Catskills, but we moved to Latham when I was in High School. Not too far from Nisakayuna.

Good luck with the 5K training. Do you know what race you will be running?<br><br>
FYI - I lived in Glen Rock for about 10 years, my college roommate is in Bloomingdale, and one of my wife's bridesmaids is in Lincoln Park. I know your neighborhood well.

Hey Litchfield Hills, not far at all. I am not sure, any recommendations? I have some people I work with that are on Kickrunners also. We were thinking of doing a 5k together.

Thanks Jill, I trying to get over the week 5 hump right now and with my work schedule training is quite hectic, most of the time I train at lunchtime and kickbox twice a week at night. I need to rev it up some more.

I <i>lived</i> in GR - I have been in Connecticut for about 4 years now, so I am not that familiar with the racing scene there. Sorry for the confusion.
