I am by no means a fast runner.  I have short legs, and they have to move fast for me to move at any reasonable pace.  But I still like to run... And whatever speed I CAN run at, I like to run at.  I'm not very good at slowing down my pace to run longer distances.  I'm sure that if I had someone to slow me down, I could go out and run 8 miles today.  But I can't.  Because I'll run at the pace I'd run to go 4 miles, and then I'd be tired, get a side stitch, and stop.  I just can't slow down!  I know that if I WOULD slow down, and run longer, eventually I would get faster.  I'm just not good at that.  I think I'd be really bad at training for a marathon...

On the bright side, I did get to run today (4.4 miles in 37 minutes) in my new shoes, the Brooks Ravenna 2.  And while I would never choose a shoe based on the color, I was very excited to see that the new version is orange.  I am a fan of orange. 

Now, for a question...

Should I invest my amazon dollars that I have yet to spend on a Garmin Forerunner 305?  Would it help me pace myself better?
