      Bernie - Um... just a thought for you - you've got people in the 5 mile division who've been running 10+ years. You might want to pick a different goal for this year than beating them in the "virtual" race. You're doing great now, don't get me wrong, but I worry when people say things like that. Janell

                      As you know, I started running this May and weighed 252lbs, I am now at 219lbs! SO being 6'5" and weighing 219 I felt that I had to change my name from Fat Man Running to "The Running Man". I will miss Fat Man Running, just not the Fat he was running with! Big grin

                        I have changed my normal 5 mile run to an 8 mile run. Why you say? Well, I have found that by running a slow 8 miles my heart rate is actually lower than my 5 mile pace but I get in an extra 3 miles without any extra soreness. And since my goal is to get in better shape and lose weight the extra 3 miles should help acheive both. Big grin
