I'm so glad I found this message board!
I'm 46 and just started running seven weeks ago. I have one more week to go for my Ease into 5K program, and I'm looking forward to my first run on Jan. 1.
I have lots of questions, but those can wait. I simply wanted to introduce myself to those of you in this new world I've finally discovered.
Welcome aboard (so to speak). There are a couple pretty active threads in "General Running Discussion" and a couple in "Newbie Cafe". You're welcome to post in any of them. It's a friendly crowd.
If you find yourself having aches and pains, try "The Med Tent". You'll get lots of advice on most issues and there are a couple very knowledgable people who check it regularly. But hopefully you won't need it.
Good luck on your first race! It's lots of fun.
