Are these running tights or underwear (or both)?

I received these compression pants and I would like to use them as running tights. To my mind, the difference between "running tights" and "base layer" is primarily just marketing, but similar models look like they are really just meant to be underwear. Assuming the ugly waistband is covered by my shirt or jacket, can the pants I received be worn as running tights (without shorts over the top), or will everyone think I'm running in my long johns?

Where to run in Bryan - College Station that isn't concrete?

We'll be spending time in Bryan-College Station over Thanksgiving. Where can we get in a long run -- say, 7-10 miles -- that isn't concrete? Crushed granite paths would be ideal, but I'm not holding my breath.

Please recommend some DJ mixes to put on my running iPod

I've started listening to hour long DJ mixes as the soundtrack to my daily runs. I love BigBeat, Funk, GlobalHouse, Soul, mash-up type stuff.

Gift and/or ideas for girlfriend running PHL marathon

My GF is running her first-ever marathon next weekend in Philadelphia. I'm looking for creative or interesting suggestions for either a gift or something I can do that she might like (beyond flowers at the finish and a massage, both of which are a done deal). Any runners out there have a specific suggestion--maybe something sweet or thoughtful that was done for you after you finished? Thanks!

Are my cheap running shoes hurting me?

I use throwback Saucony Jazz as my primary running shoes. They're inexpensive, seem to have adequate cushioning, are light, and are free of unwanted motion control features. But no one else runs seriously in these shoes, and they're marketed for walking around and fashion. Is there something about the construction that makes them significantly inferior to more expensive running shoes? [more inside]

How do I get myself to love running and physical activity?

I've been on a bit of a health kick lately--excercising, moving around, and trying to really improve the life I've been leading. I've also begun to run as well and even though I know it is good for him, I always balk, delay, or procrastinate when I know I should do it. After exercising I feel great. Awesome. Amazing. However, it is the initial thought of getting out there, that effort, that strain that prevents me from breaking inertia and actually getting out there. [more inside]

Help me get better at jogging

I have always enjoyed (casually) running, and I've started running with more regularity, but I feel like I could be doing it better. Some times I get a good cadence going, and other times I feel like I'm running through jelly, even though I'm running in the same areas. Oh, and my running partner is my dog, who I'm training to ignore various exciting things while we run. More inside. [more inside]

Is running supposed to be hard even if you are cardio-fit?

I thought I was cardio-fit. Jumping rope for 30-40 minutes makes me feel good and doesn't leave me exhausted. So why is it that running feels so damn hard? I just started running outside and I can barely do a mile in 10 minutes. I have to seriously push through the first five minutes and after just one mile I am DONE. How can this be? Does it mean that I am doing something wrong? Do I need running lessons? Or is this a typical newbie feeling that will go away soon? Details: female, early 40's, low BMI. I don't have any running goals, just want to enjoy running outside.

I'm training for my first 5k and need a shoe upgrade

I've been running off and on for a few years now in a pair of Nike free 5.0 v4, whenever the guilt hits me. I've decided to take my health serious as I'm getting older. Since I'm goal oriented, I decided to train for and complete my very first 5k race which is scheduled for mid October. Problem is, my current pair of sneakers is starting to give at the soles. They are a great, light and comfortable minimalist shoes that caused no problems for my feet. Another plus was being able to go sock-less without a single blister. Can anyone suggest a suitable replacement? So far, I have my eyes on the New Balance MT10v2 and will be running 2-3 times a week in addition to some core work.

Why did I wear a hole through my left running shoe but not the right?

I've worn a hole through the sole of my left running shoe, but not the right. You can see pictures of both shoes here. What does this mean? Is something wrong with my stride? Do I need some special kind of shoe? Is there some sort of expert to whom I should show the shoes? I have an odd gait when I walk (my right foot sticks out to the side); however, I thought my running gait was better. When I ran in my 20s (the last time I was a runner), I didn't have this problem with any of my shoes.

We need clever things to write in chalk for a fun run.

I do a regular 5km free, timed run every Saturday. It's called parkrun if any of you have heard of it. It's around the world, so there's likely one near you. But that's not what I'm writing about. This Saturday coming it's themed. I'm not single, but a gazillion single people run it and they're hoping to meet someone... so the event director has asked that people dress in the colours of traffic lights. Red if you're not interested/taken, orange if you're not sure, green if you're looking to meet someone. [more inside]

Looking for videos on running and muscle use

I'm just learning how to run, and I don't think I'm doing it correctly. For one, I don't seem to engage my hamstrings much at all, and I suspect I over stride, etc. I'd love to watch a visualization or video of proper running form with the muscles highlighted as they are in use. I've found a few videos on youtube, but none that show the muscles and how they work throughout the stride.

Cadence Training + Podcast Listening?

I developed a knee injury while training for a 10K. I ran the 10K (much to my knee's displeasure), but saw a doctor and physical therapist shortly thereafter. My physical therapist has recommended that I work on cadence training to improve my form. I primarily listen to podcasts (via Downcast, but I can change apps if necessary), and am looking for a cadence training metronome that will run in the background while I play my podcasts. Any suggestions? The metronome in the app "Running Cadence" is what I'm looking for (input your bpm, and it spits out a clicking sound), but it gets all funky when I try to run Downcast at the same time. Any suggestions for cadence training apps (for iPhone) that will run while playing podcasts would be much appreciated!

Accurate running pace?

I've recently taken up jogging again, this time with an iPhone and the Nike+ app to track my runs. It seems to be pretty sloppy at tracking pace, compared to my old Nike shoe sensor. It's very smoothed out, so doing intervals, for instance, looks like a sine wave instead of a square wave. Are there any solutions that are better at this?
