For those who are curious, I've started running again.
I recently joined a nice community gym that has lots of treadmills and friendly people. Even better, they have a deal for new members so that if I work out 24 times in the next two months (roughly 3 times a week), I get my third month free. How cool! Not only do I save money, but I have an extra incentive to put in the work necessary to form the good habits I need.
Chicago 2008 is coming... And I'm planning to actually train well for it this year! :)
