Welcome to the team!

4 miles is excellent! After doing 5 miles reg. for over a year, I finally started to push myself for a HM. Not sure if I'll do one this year yet or wait till Spring. Either way, I'm training for one. You will get there.

You're in the right place! I've always said, if you run 1 mile or 26.2, you're a runner! I'm actually on the other side of running. Been doing it for 30 plus years, and because I have some worn parts, I've cut back quite a bit. I just don't want to get injured, because I have no idea what I would do if I couldn't run. Enjoy the process!!!

I am not new to spark people, but am fairly new to running. I was part of the spark people 5k team last year, did a 5k, then stopped running. I have been running again for about two months now and am loving it. From the looks of things I am way behind most folks posting with this team. My longest, no walk, run is 4 miles and my average pace is 12 min per mile, but I figure with all of the experience here I can surely learn something and get advice from time to time.
