"A healthy mind in a healthy body."

I started running last October and I've lost 30 lbs. Along with this though I've noticed many other body changes. There are two in particular that I am interested in. The veins in my hands and feet are more defined and my elbows are no longer ashy. Is there any kind of relationship between these two changes and my new running lifestyle? Not sure if this makes a difference or not but I've also cut out all fast food, soft drinks, junk food and I'm eating healthy balanced meals now.

Gotta Run Now!

What's the name of that song that you play on your running playlist that makes you push yourself further? You know the one - you're jogging at a decent, steady pace and then it comes on and mentally you go "Oh, YES!" and suddenly everything seems to get a lot more awesome and you are running full pelt with a huge grin on your face.

Obstacle course training help.

Okay, so when I turned 40 last year I wasn't super-psyched about the direction my body was going. I started exercising a bit, and this year decided to set a goal. I decided to do this stupid "Warrior Dash" thing. Possibly because it looked more fun than a standard race, possibly because I'm an idiot. [more inside]

"If the shoe doesn't fit, must we change the foot?"

I've recently started long distance running (5 months). I purchased a pair of running shoes two months ago and I've noticed that my left shoe is rubbing the back of my achilles tendon. Does anyone know of any type of product that will cushion the back of my running shoe and prevent it from rubbing against my tendon in this way? I can still run at the moment but there is some strong soreness where that part of the shoe hits the back of my foot. [more inside]
