Hello everyone! I have been interested in running for awhile now, but I am only now taking the steps to actually become a runner. My goal is to participate in at least one obstacle run, such as the "Dirty Girl" or "Mudderella" and to run the 5K portion of Utica NY's Boilermaker road race. I do have a treadmill that I am using, but I have noticed a distinct difference between running a treadmill and road running, so I would like to get outdoors as soon as possible. If anyone has any tips for running outdoors during the winter, it would be much appreciated!

Hello team I am new to running, well rather, walking and running. I have done both road and trail and enjoy it.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

Hi, my name is Jom (nickname) and I've ran cross-country for four years. I went out of season for awhile but I'm picking it back up again. My goal is to run a 5K with a 7 minute mile. I love to run but I also like to cycle:)

My name is Pippa, I'm 26 and from the UK. Running is the main way I get any exercise, and I'm getting more and more competitive with it. I keep seeing races to try and I am probably going to be flat out broke because of racing. Couldn't care less! My most expensive pair of shoes ARE my running shoes.

Hi there

I am doing my 2nd half Ironman (Iron 112) in August. My name is Cheryl, I live in Canada and I a shade under 50 years old. I am in my second week of base training *16 week program) and I am finding that this time around, my running is very bad. I am recovering (2 months into recovery) from a small tear in the hip flexor (old injury) and a strained abductor/medial glut. The transition training from bike to run outdoors is really difficult with my legs feeling like lead

I was wondering if anyone had any additional tips and as I have always run outside, I was wondering if I did the training using my treadmill for a couple weeks (with hills programmed in) if that would help my muscle memory come back. Currently I train everyday but with something different each day so that I don't work on the same areas two days in a row.

Anyway glad to be here! Speaking of which today is a 5K run day, so off I go!
