well the response below are motivating me, but when you do the long runs do you do several loops, run out and back, or drive to a trail? I have a run I do at my house thats about 7 miles, I could loop that a few times, but theres also a nice trail, I'm not sure how many miles but it is long, but its also like a 15 min ride away, I'm not sure thats worth it.
Also, do you run by yourself or in a group? Someone wrote that they have a group, and that would motivate me to get up and go, but I'm worried about pass and keeping up to others or having to slow down for others, and running with a group would most likely involve driving somewhere. If you do run with a group though, did you join a running group by yourself or is it just a group of friend?
