Hi all. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 32 year old with 3 kids. I started running in November of last year. I can not run fast at all actually I'm more of a 16 minute runner. I am very scared of hurting myself because I am also 220 plus lbs. I used to run on a treadmill and that got boring. My goal this year is a half marathon. I stopped running a few weeks ago after some health issues and now I'm having tr hardest time starting against and committing to a half marathon in September. I would love to find a running buddy yet no sites are local in my area :-(. I am looking for some motivation or encouragement because I so need this! I want to do a half, I've done. 5k and my pr is 8 miles but I'm so slow and out of shape. I know that that won't stop me but I'm having trouble committing.
