I ran track in High School and to me a long run going around the track 4 times. In college I had to take a Navy Physical Fitness test twice a year which included a 3 mile run. Through out my years in the Navy I would have to run 1.5 miles twice a year. When I turned 50 I took a couch to 5K class at the Ashburn Village Sports Pavillion. I then ran in the spring and summers for 4 years. Took off one year because of hip pain and not wanting Hip replacement. Turned out I just needed PT. 1 year after PT I ran my first Half Marathon (The Loudoun Half). I joined AARC after the half in April 2015. 7 months later I ran my first marathon.
