@Jennywren Good luck with your ultra, I’m sure you’ll do great and we look forward to hearing how your training is going and of course a post race report.


@runpilotfish
I started running at 3 months, but didn’t do anything more than a 3 mile run a couple of times a week for probably 9 months or more. Everyone is different so it’s important to listen to your body. If you don’t feel great, cross or strength train, it will pay dividends in the long run. I’ve overdone it twice in the last 10 years and have had to stop running for a year each time. Now I follow my own advice I’ve been running longer than ever and pretty much injury free for the last 2 years. Good luck with your journey.
