Get started running

I love running. It is the greatest part of my life. I can't imagine the time before I started running.
It is actually very easy to get started. The secret is start small and increase slowly. Right now just go for a run, walk or jog. The distance you go will be your base distance. The two secrets are:
Never go less than your base distance.
Increase your base distance gradually daily or at least weekly.
Run/walk as often you can. Daily if possible. Running is the best part of my life.

First cold night of the year

Running Journal 5:19 PM 12/6/2017 Wed
Central, IL Wednesday 5:00 PM Cloudy 33°F
Precipitation: 0%
Humidity: 72%
Wind: 12 mph
It was cold and windy tonight but after the mile or half mile you don't notice. I just wore tights and a hooded sweatshirt and a windbreaker with stocking cap and gloves. When it gets colder I will wear two pairs of tights.
It was perfect It was not too hot or too cold. Nice 5 mile run.

Take a break in between periods of hard training

Ran just 3 miles tonight. Legs felt very sluggish, I think these may be times when your muscles are in a rebuilt phase. The first part of which is to tear them down before rebuilding them stronger than they were. These are the times when a lot injuries can occur. You could train really hard, and cause a start of the teardown phase of the rebuilding process which makes you stronger. The first part of this phase is teardown and if your training continues at the same rate or increases, injuries can occur.

Getting Volunteers Is The Hardest Part

Getting Volunteers are the hardest part of putting on a race. It is comparably easy to just do the work yourself, because of all of the work necessary to put on a race, this is not possible. The harder part of trying getting others to help is necessary. It is a proven fact that in any group two or three percent of the people do 100% of the work. As one who has been a race director, I know that before that I had no idea of the amount of work that goes into putting on a race. It is so much more fun to talk to friends before and after running, instead of helping.
