I don't do a lot of running, but I like doing middle-distances like 5k and 10k to keep myself from totally going to seed on the couch. I'm not fast enough to sprint in short distance races, and don't have the cardiovascular fitness to do marathons, but the middle works well for me. Some minor knee issues have put me on the elliptical trainer and stationary bike more than doing actual running over the last couple of years, but it's nothing serious and doesn't bother me as long as I don't go overboard.

|Starting out. That banner you can barely see is the start line. Lots of folks slowly making their way toward it.|
|Finish line! From the rear, after I finished, which is why you see everyone just standing around.|
