  • I've been a runner for the last 35 years and this is sound advice for the beginner. Enjoy the journey!! - 11/16/2011 8:27:40 AM
  • Thanks for a great article. I just had a baby and am starting back into the exercise routine. I am just starting the Walk/Jog Your Way to 5K program! Thanks for great advice! - 6/10/2011 11:57:10 PM
  • Good read. - 6/10/2011 9:26:33 PM
  • Great article. Definitely agree with building the foundation first. It takes time letting your body acclimate but it's worth the investment. Also just got through the audiobook "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall and it opened my eyes on many things running related and was also an awesome and well written book. Highly recommend it to any one new or deep in the sport. - 6/10/2011 9:20:39 PM

  • Another sparker have to be a slow fat runner before you can be a fast thin runner. RWC!!!! - 6/10/2011 2:27:33 PM
  • yes, I need the reminder to go slow! I always want to be a great runner and sometime I need to remember that I have to be a so-so runner first as I build my way to great. Thanks!

  • This was a great article for me, personally. I have always started out full speed ahead and then suffer with a lot of pain. Then eventually quit altogether. This time, I will start out slow and build up. Thanks for the great advice. - 6/10/2011 1:32:22 PM
  • The end of your article really meant something to me. I have always wanted to run, but never believed I could do it. With continuous help from SP, I will be able to achieve a dream. - 2/20/2011 10:13:39 AM
  • Great intro for me as I work my way back into running. I am signed up for a half in May next year and am only beginning. Sounds like I need to use my time well. What I liked about the article is the sensible approach to taking on a new challenge rather than 'let's get out there and do it!'
    Thanks! - 11/11/2010 9:06:17 AM
