Glad to have you here, half marathon is a great goal, its a fun distance too. I think the longer distances are good for us turtles cause it is just about finishing not winning!

I was looking thru the teams and fell over this one. Wow! I don't feel so bad now about my "slow pace". I run.... well, I jog.... okay, okay, I confess, I mostly WALK, but my goal is to run a 1/2 Marathon next year, not to win, but to finish. I don't even come close to winning any race. I just started running this year and became addicted within just a couple of months. My first run was a 10k... my sister thought we could do it. Well, I did finish just in front of the ambulance. Since then I have gradually moved up from last place to being in the last quarter of runners. It's okay, I run for me and don't race for anyone! I am 57 and wish I had started years ago, but it's just never too late to start running. I hope this team becomes motivation for me. Thanks for letting me blab. emoticon

You don't have to cross the finish line first to win.
