Just got done running 4 miles! But the farthest was 6 miles. It is so relaxing, I love putting on my headphones and rocking out!

I don't know, it was in the Army with full pack, etc. It only seemed like a light year at the time.

Training for a 10K right now - 5 miles this morning easy. Plan to run a half marathon in October. Cardio cross-training on alternate days really helps. It does get easier.

The farthest I've ever run is from home.

(Fortunately, my path was constrained to an orb.)

Ran a lousy ten miles...swam a lousy two while recovering from a back injury...been a lousy athlete all my life...though still ready to die to evade any finish line...if I feel I have to...yet always ready to dance like a motown mojo mofo!~)

Not much for running, but I swam 5 miles a day, six days a week for 4 years and I've walked 20 or more miles carrying a backpack hundreds of times. Does that count...

I ran 18 miles once training for a marathon I never ran because 18 miles on my body was hell.

Did all of the running that I care to do in life back when I was in the Corps. Nothing like running 3+ miles on a sandy beach in boots and uts or running 6+ miles on asphalt but the best is when I was an a-gunner and had the tripod smacking off my spine as I ran when we did weapon runs

The Greek dude only ran because he didn't have a car. God gives us cars so we don't have to run.

Ran my first 5K on Sunday. Unofficially I've probably gone farther. I'm actually more of a jogger/speed-walker than runner.

Officially, a 5K. I have run 10 miles before in one setting, but I usually do 3-4 miles daily.

When I played football I was 230 and pretty strong but could run a little bit like maybe 5 miles or something if I pushed but regularly ran 2 miles.

Then, in my 30s I leaned down to about 190 and could run half marathon and probably more but for concern of one my knees. I ran 2 miles on my off days and ran 5 - 10 miles on days I was working it. I only did 10 if I was pissed at something. That was a good time because i could eat whatever I wanted and as much without getting fat.

Now, at 44, shin splits put an end to running and walking is boring so I have gotten fat. I am actually just as strong or stronger then when I played, but at 270 I am lucky if I could beat Jonas to the fridge.

I am guessing I need to work more cardio verse lifting at the gym and on a machine that does put pounding on my legs ....... but that is boring as well......

I don't know how far. Never tried to go back and step off the distance. It seemed the farmer was rather protective of those water melons. If the question was how fast. That would be easy. Faster than rock salt travels.
