Welcome to the team. I wish I had some advice for you, but I am a beginning runner. Hopefully some of the more experienced runners on here will have some answers for you.

To all!

It has been a goal of mine for years now, to run marathons. I then started reading about ultra-marathons and that has been added to my list of goals, but one thing at a time.
I live in Dubuque, Iowa with my wife and son. Towards the end of November of 2011 I made the conscious decision to quit smoking and drinking and get back to a healthy way of life. I began running and working out and then I read the book, "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougal and I became interested in running ultra-marathons. This type of extreme sport is very exciting and truly challenges the spirit, the mind, and the body.
I have been training now for over a month but with life and hockey (my son plays on a travel hockey team so our weekends can be full of traveling around the Iowa/Wisconsin/Illinois area) training alone can be difficult. I run on the treadmill 2 - 4 days per week and I was able to get outside once so far and did fairly well, but I could use some help and training advice and ideas. My nutrition is good but I am always willing to hear suggestions and what works for other people.

Thank you!
