As a devoted runner (who is still trying to hit that 8 minute mile!), I advise you to find a running group ASAP! Ask at your local running shop, look on meetup, maybe your gym has one. I promise you it will support both your emotional and running goals! I've been with mine for almost 10 years and really feel like those folks are my pack.


Yeah, it's a definite outpouring of grief. Surprisngly running is the only form of exercise I've been able to stick to, but I think it's because I'm a fairly intense person and seems to work well for me.. and it's measurable.

If you just want to run one 8 minute mile you'll be able to get there in less than 6 weeks. If you want to be a consistent 8 minute miler and figure out a secret, let me know! ;-)

I'm with a running group and while I do pay money for my coach, track workouts, and daily emails, I know that last year that the Saturday runs were open to the public to pop in every once in awhile. I can ask my coach if that's changed. We meet 8am at Fit Right (running store) in NW PDX. The bonds (and progress) I've made since joining this group has been amazing. We have a ton of pace groups and distances covered and just started up yesterday. If you'd like any more details feel free to email me!


Good. For. You.


You are a talented runner. Get out there and use your new found talent! Seriously....
