You'll ruin your knees!
I may be the very last person to post here...
I'm a 35 year old architect in Belfast, Maine (along the coast about 2 hours north of Portland)
I'm hoping to run a 10K next year when I'm assured I'm not going to be last!
I'm trying a 20-24 mile training week and one day I hope to be in that 100-mile club - today calves are recovering from yoga class.
I love reading the posts and playing with my charts, thanks Eric,

...but, I am alive and, God willing, am better prepared to live a healthier, happier life...and who knows....at this rate...I will break 200 pounds this year...new wardrobe time!
Who wants to go shopping when that happens!??!! :-)

WELCOME! There are enough of us that have to get in the last word that this post isn't likely to ever end! We are glad you decided to join us. Now, let's talk about that "last" thing. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, in fact, in my circles, some races actually recognize that placement as "most determined", or some such thing. Keep in mind, if you are last in a race, you are ahead of everyone that didn't show up to toe the line in the first place!
Hey Podoasis - as we ex-hippie types used to (and still do) say, "Keep on truckin'!" That marathon finish line is going to be sweet!
I ran my first Marathon last year...on November 27th...in Seattle!
