    Love your site anne and I respectfully envy you for living in Washington D.C. I love it there and there are awesome places to run along the Hudson. I wish you the very best in your running career and business. If you ever need a running friend am not far away:) Hope you get some PR’s in 2014:)

    Hi Anne!
    I’m going to give your 10 mile training plan that you wrote in 2010 a try! I’ve had knees problems and don’t believe running 4,5,6 times a week is necessary either. I really like that you have 3 days and similar crosstraining to what I do. I look forward to it, thank you!

    Hi Anne,

    I was wondering if I could get your opinion about running shoes. I am a relatively new runner (training for my first half marathon this fall!). I am reaching the point where I need to purchase new shoes. The Brooks that I love have come up with a new model/version. In your opinion, is it best to go with the newest version of the same shoe or stick with what I’ve been running in? Thanks so much!

      I would try the new ones and see if you like them! That matters most – if they don’t feel as good, stick with your original model. The older model is probably cheaper now, too!

    Hi! I’m new to your site :) you have a lot of great information and great tips! I’m a new runner (started last year) and also a new blogger (started last month) and I am loving both :)

    I did a half recently and am training for a full. I only run 3 days a week also, but I haven’t been doing tempo runs or hill training. I have a left knee injury so trying to focus more on endurance and not on speed.
    What are your thoughts? I follow the Jeff Galloway plan (two 30 minute sessions during the week and one weekend LR); but my 30 minute sessions are normally slow and steady just like my long run…should I change this to have more tempo workouts and hill work?

      Hi there! Welcome to my blog and to the blog world! Regarding the running, if you want to get a specific time for the full, you’ll want to do some variation in running speed/hills/etc. But obviously it will depend how your knee does. It’d probably be best to talk to a running coach for more help! Also, do lots of icing that knee and foam rolling! Good luck!

    Hi Anne, thanks for sharing your posts about running. It is really helpful to both amateur and pro runners. Running is not an easy thing to do. You have to be prepared emotionally, mentally and physically. I just wonder how other people manage to run despite of their hectic schedules. Do you know any tips to manage time between work and running?

    Wow! Thanks for the good tips. I was able to manage my time between work and getting fit, all thanks to you. I wonder if you have new posts for 2017 about running events and gadgets that are useful for running.

    These are two great posts Anne, thanks for sharing. I’m really getting back into my running lately, these will help me.

    Hi Anne, appreciate your information it is inspiring! I have been training for quite some time for my first marathon. My problem is having the time to train with a hectic lifestyle. How do manage to find the time?

      Honestly you just have to make the time! I usually do training runs in the early morning before work – and on weekends would start early too so it didn’t take up the whole weekend. That said, training for a marathon is definitely time intensive no matter what!
