Awesome article!

I was passed by a pregnant walker once when I first started. LOL! I'm not that much faster now. Oh well...I AM running! :)

Hahaha, that was a welcome read. I've definitely been passed by walkers before. Just think - the slower you run, the more time you have to take in your beautiful surroundings!

Thanks for sharing the article. I got a great laugh lol Reminds me of the t-shirt I once saw another runner wearing it said "Please God, let there be someone behind me to read this t-shirt" lol

Cheers,

If I ever graduate up from walking to running, I expect that I will be the tortoise.
Slow and steady finishes the marathon, right?

Great read. I particularly like his term 'exer-slog' to describe how he runs. I'm definitely familiar with the exer-slog.
