Thank You!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!
I am just getting started trying to build my running times, as I haven't been running too often and I am getting into it for personal reasons, and a new job opportunity that requires running.

I have been through hundreds of sites trying to find tips on how to even get started and your beginners running programs are the best I have seen! They are simple to understand and just reading through the whole program, I can see it will work. I have had a great start so far (2 weeks) and your plan is so easy to follow, which gives me hope and motivation to keep going! I will definitely be back to report my progress during and after I finish this program, but wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what this site has done to get me started!

This is the only site that I have found, that understands that not all people are full-time runners and willing to help us beginners get started! And not all of us are wanting to run marathons or just simply lose weight but to have a healthier lifestyle altogether. Thank You!

Thank you for your kind words.
It's really great to hear I am able to help out people this way. Maintaining this website is sometimes a bit of hard work, but being able to share some of my knowledge and getting back responses like this make it very worthwhile.

I am happy to hear that you got off to a good start. I hope you keep the momentum up. There will be tough days, days you do not want to go out for a run, when it is rainy and cold, and I hope that when these days come you will continue your running regardless.

Best of luck and let us know how you progress through the running program!
Kind regards,
Dominique (happy website owner)
