I'm a 44 yr old mom trying to get into running. I'm really just jogging but I'll call it running since I'm running circles around my old self that was just lounging on the couch. Be my running friend....please!
I consider jogging a slow run...so you are a runner! :) I am a 33 year old mom whom would gladly be your running friend. I am new to dailymile and haven't quite got the hang of this yet, but I enjoy seeing other posts about running on here. It is a good site for keeping up with my mileage and getting motivation as well. Hope you have an active day!
My favorite description of the difference between a jogger and a runner is that a runner has a bib number. If you've never done a race, I recommend signing up for 5k. It's lots of fun and since half the people will be walking it can be a great confidence booster.
USTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong filed a scathing response Friday to the latest doping allegations against him, accusing the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency of violating its own rules and possibly breaking federal law during its investigation.
The agency said Armstrong used performance-enhancing drugs and other improper methods to win cycling's premiere event, the Tour de France, from 1999-2005. Friday was the deadline for Armstrong to respond to USADA's warning that charges were pending before his case moves to the next stage.
Armstrong, who denies doping and notes he has http://www.cheapairjordanusa.com never failed a drug test, could be stripped of his titles and banned from cycling, though he retired from the sport last year.
In their 11-page document, Armstrong's attorneys complained they still haven't been allowed to see the evidence against him, including witness names and any expert analysis to support USADA's claim that 2009 and 2010 blood tests are "fully consistent" with blood doping.
Thanks everyone for all your friend request....I love seeing what everyone else is doing...I find its a real motivator! I also hate seeing those blank days when I don't do anything...that's also a big motivator....it keeps me a it! I started C25K last week. I skipped to week 4 which I thought closely matched where I was running wise. I do have a new goal....to run in our little towns festival 5 k race. Thanks guys ...you all are great! I love to see I have comments after I enter a workout...it makes it real
Having a goal like a local 5K is a great place to start. And it doesn't matter if you run the whole way, do a walk/run or walk it. They are all steps in the right direction. "Now" is always the right to get fit and healthy.
Glad to see another Kentucky DMer! I have a poster that reads "Whether if it's a 7 minute mile or a 17 minute mile, it's still a mile!" I share that with folks just starting out. yes you will see people on here who are logging 50 or 60 miles per week (or more), but there are lots of people who are right where you are (or were not too long ago). just stay with it and you will do fine! Friend request sent.
All the best Pamela - we have all been there. Friend of mine have started this year and even coaxed me to start a blog to help them get into running. Check out www.you2canrun.com for some advice as we all use running to stay healthy!

FR sent! It's great that you are giving running a go! It's so amazing and if you stick with it, you will probably fall in love with it like most other people. I considered jogging to be relative to how fast you can go. So, your run maybe slower than someone else's jog, but it's a run for you. Good luck :)! Can't wait to see progress!
