Started running when forced to choose between 90 minutes of Rugby and 25 of running. Hated both so there was only one possible choice. I think my best achievement in those days was 1.9 miles in over 22 minutes. Started jogging for myself even while I was skiving off running at school and continued on and off till my knees began to complain when I was 45.

Three years later I decided my knees were OK again (thanks, Hay diet). I discovered Runner\\\'s World and that there was such a thing as training, fancy shoes &c, so I set out to become a better runner aiming for improvements in speed and distance, with the obvious goal of a marathon. Actually I first met a marathoner in the early 80s and another five years later. At that point I decided I would do a marathon before I was 60. Running stopped again when I discovered I\\\'d had plantar fasciitis for months, and I\\\'ve spent the last couple of years building up slowly to above 25 mpw now.

I\\\'m learning ChiRunning as a means of sparing my heels. Ihave a way to go, but I can't imagine ever running on my heels again. Apart from anything else, it gets me 1500 miles or more out of a pair of shoes.
