Just started running regularly, actually. I used to be terrible when I was a kid (mile of 9:30 or more) but recently I've decided to really work on my endurance/get in shape. Once I started running a couple miles a night, I was able to shave significant time off my mile run. Last time I timed myself, I ran a little over a mile in 7:06, which really surprised me. ;-D I'm going to keep going at it as long as I can and hopefully I can get under 6:00 by the end of the summer. I've always been a decent sprinter, though it takes me a little too long to make it to top speed.

My decision to start running was partially influenced by my ex-girlfriend's new guy being an elite runner. :-/ (4:30 mile)

Also, running in 84 degree humid weather at 1 AM feels surprisingly good.

I never ran track, but I did a lot of running to stay in shape for other sports. Used to be able to get three miles in under 18 minutes, best single mile time I ever clocked was 5:09. I always wanted to break the five minute mark but never could.

Im a big runner. I do XC, and indoor and outdoor track in HS. I do most events that are a mile+, focusing on the 2mile and 5K. When I turn 18 or so I want to do a marathon for sure. I will probably be the #1 runner on my XC team and should be one of the top 2milers in the area next year.

Ran the 400m in Track, anything longer than that is a no go. I admire people who can run long distances takes a lot of character to do that.
