What's the Longest Race You've Ever Run?

What's the Longest Race You've Ever Run?

Since the Boston Marathon is coming up on Monday, it got me thinking about races. Running a marathon has definitely been a whisper in my ear, but so far I've only done a few 5Ks. What about you?

I've never run a race or a marathon but I really want to. I think a friend of mine and I are going to join a running club that prepares for the next marathon in your City. I'm pretty stoked about it.

After just starting to run in January (I was sidelined for high-impact exercise for 6 years after a nasty skiing accident), I just completed my first half-marathon and am going for a full marathon in December. In between now and then, I'm doing a couple 15Ks, 10Ks and at least two more half-marathons. :)

unfortunately only 5k... I've run up to 10k at a time in practice, but I haven't been able to get my timing correctly to run a proper 10k race. Hm... this got me thinking. It could be another goal to set for myself this year...

I use to do marathons but found I am too prone to over-use injuries. Now my longest races are 1/2 marathons; for me the perfect compromise. And every time I line up for a 1/2 marathon and there is a marathon going at the same time I am sooo happy I don't have to run 13 more miles! But what I really want to get into is adventure racing.

I ran a 5k, but didn't run for a year. So I'm building back up using the C25K program.

I have run two 10-mile races and would love to try a half-marathon. I am not naturally athletic or fast, but it is worthwhile to set a goal and have something concrete, like a race, to make sure I meet it! Also it is fun to run with so many other people! Before I started doing occasional races, I had no idea there were so many runners in the world.

I did my first 1/2 in 2005... and after leaving the military, sort of lost my motivation to run. But one of my freinds made me a shadow box with my race shirt, medal, number and a picture to motivate me to run after work. So far it's been working great!

I ran my first half marathon last year @ SF's Nike Women's Marathon...wow, was that tough!! But by far one of my most proudest accomplishments. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I didn't get a spot through the random lottery, but instead, my friends and I are doing the half @ Disneyland in August!! I can't wait to run through Disneyland, it's going to be so cool!! =)

Because of certain health conditions, I really can't run. But hell, I'll walk 5,000 miles if you want me to!!!

I ran my first 5k last weekend. I hope to be able to run a marathon within a year. Is that too much distance for a new runner? Once I got the hang of it...I LOVE RUNNING!

I love races. I'm not super fast, but it's just so fun to be out there with other runners. I have my own time goals for races that I try to focus on rather than winning. I try to do a marathon each year with lots of shorter distances throughout the year.
