Thanks for the advice you have given on my last post! Please keep it coming! I know that my friend isn't alone in her concerns as a person trying to get into running shape and start a running lifestyle.
Also, here is a link about the race I ran this weekend written by a local running blogger for Oregonlive.com. Makes me want to run it again. I think it will fill up much faster next year. The Half Marathon for sure! Lots of people from all around coming to run this half!
