I 'M MARRIED WITH THREE CHILDREN,JASON 21, HAYLIE 11 and DAMIEN 3.I STARTED RUNNING IN OCTOBER 2006 WHEN HAYLIE WAS 10 MONTHS OLD AS I COULDNT SHIFT THE BABY WEIGHT.I FOUND I LOVED RUNNING AND WASNT TOO BAD AT IT!FROM MAY TO DECEMBER 2008 I HAD A SWOLLEN KNEE WHICH NOBODY COULD DIAGNOSE.I HAD KEYHOLE SURGERY IN NOV 09,WITH NO REAL DIAGNOSIS,AND AS OF 14/03/10 I'M BACK UP TO A NEW PB OF 16.3 MILES!!! UPDATE....MORE HOSPITAL TESTS....DIAGNOSED WITH INFLAMMATORY ARTHRITIS IN LEFT KNEE (june 2012),SO LETS SEE HOW IT GOES!I HOPE EVERYONE'S TRAINING GOES WELL AND THEY ENJOY THEIR EXPERIENCE! MY PBS ARE AS FOLLOWS:5K = 22.29mins (WILL NEVER BEAT THIS AGAIN!!)5 mile = 39.46mins (38 mins???)10k = 51.22 mins (GOT TO GET SUB 50)half marathon = 1hr 55 mins (WOULD LIKE 1.50?)

Better week next week!

Evening  This week started good with a run on monday of 3 miles. The knee was hurting quite a bit as i started but got better as the run went on,and ever since every day has been better and better! I'm still leaving around 4 days between runs at the mom...
