Right now I run when the urge strikes me. Usually when I miss a day or two at the gym. I have lots of restless energy I need to get out. I live right in the heart of Elizabeth.
I've been a runner nearly my whole life. A cross-country runner in high school, for excercise in college with a season as the UNC cross country trainer to prep for coaching, assistant cross country coach at Sun Valley HS (1988 - 1990), and a weekend warrior runner after I left teaching. Lots of road races until my knees and shins gave up. I've recently started back because I've missed running so much. I take it pretty easy...just a few days a week...and mostly to work off energy and work related stress. I'm happy to find a group to run with to keep it fun.
I run mostly around Elizabeth or if I'm full of energy up to the new greenway and on to Freedom Park and back. I'm done with competitive racing or even local 3Ks but my favorite runs are a bit shorter and faster.
My current running goal to is get a great workout, stay in shape, and really enjoy myself.
I live in the Elizabeth area and recently got back into running...mostly for fun. I've been wondering who has been running past my house in such a large group. I look forward to meeting people who enjoy running and P-Stone. A great combo!
