I wondering if any of you out there were runners of any kind. Track, Cross Country, Marathon, Runner for Fun, etc. I'm a Corss-Country and a Track runner and I'm really into it. If your're looking for a sport that's fun really fufilling, and great for you, Cross-Sountry is the way to go. I obviously highly recomned it. Well anyways post anything running here.
I run... in fact, just had a race this afternoon- my personal record of the season at 18:34 for a 5K. I'm hoping to break 18 to have my career personal record broken.
i ran stockholm marathon a couple of days ago, 3rd of june to be precise. it's just a hobby, it took me 3h 56min to finish. 42.195km is a little bit too long distance to run, but it was a great feeling to finish. i felt like a olympic winner... almost cried...
and it wasn't just a marathon. i had 2 boat trips (finland-sweden-finland) and that was fun too, something not a weekday thing to do.
running is a good hobby, if you only remember to start slow enough. and walk too, if neccessary. when you get into decent condition, it's real fun.
I like to run also, but I am not real consistent. I seem to have more fun (and thus am drawn more towards) friendly competitive sports like pick-up basketball. What motivates your running, is it plain exercise, trying to better your times, do you train with others, or other reasons?
I've been running about 25 years. When I was younger I competed at track races and marathons. At the moment my main goals are in ultrarunning. Couple of weeks ago I ran my third 100k race and I'm dreaming of participating Spartathlon in future. Not in this year, but maby next.
I'm training for the Honolulu Marathon - my first ever! My last run was a half-marathon.
