I have run five marathons and regularly run 20-30 miles every week and wanted to just offer up that if anyone has running questions, just let me know. I have trained a friend for a marathon and also helped others start from nothing. So...just let me know. I would love to help.

( I don't get it either )<br><br><br><br>
Here's A question...I am switching to a vegetarian diet two weeks before a half marathon race on Labor day weekend. Is there anything special I should be doing nutritionwise to make sure I don't do something stupid?<br><br><br><br>
I will also be doing my first marathon in January...Do you have any helpful hints for training? For veg*n nutrition?

Running is by far the best all round thing a person can do for everything. It'll show with your body, your stress levels, your heart and lungs, your immune system, your energy levels, everything.(as you guys know) And, the more you do it the easier it gets, the farther a person goes. It's just a matter of getting in the routine. I've been a vegetarian for about 15 years (since being a kid), have run regularly for 2 years (and more seriously this year, I want to do a half marathin but will hold off on that til next summer) and I just think it's so important to not just 'omit meat' from your diet. Eat well rounded....grains, veggies, and protein (and some fat of course)....I really think it's different for each person, but really it's common sense. eat small portions, eat healthy and eat more or less constantly.
