How You Like to Move It!

I am more than pleased to announce that we can all count running among our list of favorite things.

When I polled you on your all time favorite form of exercise, running came out on top. Running beat out yoga, swimming and Pilates. It even scored higher than cardio machines like the elliptical.

If you are interested in joining the pack of runners and start running be sure to read: Start Running on the Right Foot. It has some great information for newbies. If you are new to running and love it, please share how you started in the comments section below. You never know who you might motivate.

Three cheers for running!

I'm a marathoner, triathlete, and am currently a half-marathon coach. Running gets my vote, love every minute!

I just started running a month ago to lose the 15 pounds I gained since I started working :(. I've never been a good runner and hated it all throughout high school. I admired (and still do) the people who could run 6-8 minute miles. Before, I would just run and tire myself out after a mile and I never enjoyed it. But then I found the beginner's plan on, under their beginner's training section: getting started. Here's a link to the article:,7120,s6-380-381-386-678-0,00.html.

I have been a runner for about 10 years now, but I was a sprinter to start. I have never been able to run more than a mile without being winded... no matter what pace I ran. I started the Couch to 5K program you suggested about 4 weeks ago, and I am running 20 full minutes without a problem now! I have 3 weeks left until I am doing the full 30 minutes! I am trying to incorporate some sprints into my workouts to improve my pace... I can't wait to run my first 5K!

Perfect! I've just started a workout regime and running is going to be part of it. I want to run a 5K in may!

I haven't been able to run since 1979 because of some very bad knees so the elliptical gets my vote!
