Running is my "me" time. I enjoy running to clear my head, and it feels good to know that I still "got it" at 42. I have not signed up for any repeat races yet because for a while it looked as though we were going to move from Miami back up north. I don't care where we move to as long as it is a city....I am a city girl. I love the noise and the convenience of shops and things to do nearby.

1. Buy new gear. Purchase a pair of shoes, running skirt or headband that makes you excited to get out the door.

2. Sign up for a race. Committing to an event gives you a good reason to create a training plan…and stick to it.

3. Find a group. Researchers at Michigan State University found working out with a buddy— even a virtual one— motivated subjects to double the length of their workouts.

4. Add a mile. Enhance endurance by stepping up your weekly mileage. To avoid injury, increase your total mileage by only 10 percent per week.

5. Run slower on easy days. Slow down during recovery runs—your rested muscles will help you pick up the pace on hard-effort days.
