>General Running>Who all is here and what are you doing?
I'm Jeff. I started running in college 20 odd years ago when I was on the rowing team - if we weren't on the water or stationary rowing trainers (ie ergs) ashore we were running. Being in the Navy the easiest way to get an aerobic workout is to run so I kept with it. I did not get serious about racing until 2008. I prefer 15Ks to Half-Marathon distances and have done 6 marathons. Just started official training for the 2018 Carlsbad Marathon this January.
Hi all. I'm 40 years old (how did that happen?!) and I've been running on and off for a couple of years. I'm really looking to step it up a couple of gears this year and take on some longer runs. I got into running mainly for the health benefits, of course, but I have also always admired the discipline and mindset of runners. I'm hoping that this forum will help with accountability and advice from some far more experienced runners!
