Introduction

I am pretty new to running. Just started in August 2011. I have become inspired by "Born to Run" and I want to learn to run the appropriate way (no-heel and forefoot). I just wanted to find a group where I could get some realtime tips.

Help us plan runs that are best for you! What zip code do you live in? What times of day do you best like to run?

zip 28278 7:15 am and after 6:30pm m-f after 12pm on Saturday after 2pm on Sunday

Tell your fellow runners more about yourself! How long have you been running or are you new to running? What are you looking for in a runners' meetup group?

I am new to running. I want to become a better runner and improve my form away from heel running to forefoot running. Currently working on my endurance and my weight (currently 255 lbs). I believe once I get down to below 220, I will be able to sustain longer runs (my current long is 7.88 miles in 95 minutes) I am currently concentrating on my heartrate to help sustain my runs longer.

What area of Charlotte do you live/run? Where is your favorite place to run? What is you favorite distance to run (for training or racing)?

live/run in the steelecreek area. I run during lunch at work for 3.5 miles every other day (Tuesday and Thursday) and on Saturday, I run anywhere from 4miles to 10 miles.

Do have any current running goals?

run a 5k by March, a 10k by Summer, a half marathon by end of year and a full marathon by summer 2013.
