New jogger in Ottawa

For beginners, penguins, re-beginners, social types and the more low key runners for whom Boston is a tea party, not a race in the near future

New jogger in Ottawa

Postby RunningBear » Thu Aug 13, 2015 9:36 am

Just want to say hello,
I am a new runner (ok jogger) thanks to my 2 boys who asked me to quit smoking 5 months ago (pack a day for 30 years). I have been running for 4 months doing 5km at 29min 3 times a week. I did my first real race (color vibe) in 35 minutes (bumpy field run) and about to do my first half marathon (army run) in Sept :) Just want to thank all of the runners who gave me advice and tips up to now, thanks again.
