We'd just like to publicly congratulate Chad on his running! 5-6 miles a day is really great! And while good running shoes are expensive, when you think about all the money that overweight people spend on hypertension meds, type II diabetes meds, plus all of the doctor visits due to weight-related problems, I'd say that you come out ahead. Not to mention that you will look better, feel better, and sleep better! Talk about an investment! That Provo River Canyon 1/2 Marathon is the one I ran last summer, and it is a great way to start. The trail was beautiful and 97% downhill! If we end up in Utah, I may just come run it with you! Again-- good work, Chad! We are rooting for you!

Thanks. It's good to feel healthy. But I wish it wasn't so expensive. I suppose most everything worthwhile is expensive though.

Aw, don't worry...it is one of the best investments you will ever make! And you don't have a lot of kids draining your budget just yet...it will come though:)

Expensive? Kenyans are always the best long distance runners and they train barefoot and don't use heart monitors. It's only spoiled, pampered Americans that put out the kind of money you did. :-)
