I hate it, but I understand its importance, so I respect it and what it does for my body (and my career.) Also, I will continue to prefer it other types of cardio until they make headphones I can swim with affordable.

I've never been good at running. I lose my breath after running just a couple of blocks. On the other hand I am a natural at walking. My favorite form of exercising is taking brisk walks, sometimes for several miles at a time.
5w6 or 9w1 sp/so/sx, I think
Love it. Got my new pair of asics so I can train for all the summer road races around here! (And one for next November.)

I developed back problems and eventually sciatica. I might get over them by this summer, but I'm not sure if I will be able to ever do any of the ultramarathons I once loved... at least not without a serious risk of injury.
Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it
In college, I ran/biked a duathlon, coming in at 15th place in my age group--out of 16 people that is.
I only enjoy running outside, preferably during a rain or snowstorm. I'd rather run on a cloudy day than a sunny one. Barefoot running was awesome--removing those weights called "shoes." The incredulous looks were great entertainment too. Running barefoot in the rain on wet asphalt is very soothing to the feet. Strangely, it starts to feel like very firm, wet beach sand.
