    i ran the Indy 500 mini-martathon in 1:49.-not bad for a 230 lb man -was injured more often than any other time in my ,life -started with shin splints then tendonitis then torn meniscus -plus you will become addicted to running andif you are a large man you will always be hurt .Plus you will lose 50 lbs off your bench -minimum-Since my shoulder is torn up I have been trying to save enough money to buy a recumbant bike -they are expensive but wonderful for conditioning and cardio-you will also lose weight and meet alot of new people . F -- the mini-marathon-you'll just damage all your lower extremeties -check out some articles on recumbant bikes -unless you are totally committed to running this thing -please try something low impact instead .

    Advice from a former marathon runner and cross country coach, ease into your training. If you are not running at all right now, i would suggest small mileage (ie.. 2-3 miles a day) morning and evening for the first couple of weeks. I would suggest at least an 8 week training period also. It also could help to do some cross training. I like the stationary bike (preference being an airdyne type [that's the one with a fan for a wheel on the front]). Push too hard too quick and you will end up injured. Best to ya!

    Thanks again guys. I've ran 2-3 miles the past few days and am as sore as is humanly possible. I'm taking today off and getting back at it tomorrow.
