Hi, I'm Mannuel and I'm just getting into this running thing. I can't say I've never ran before I even had a pair of Brooks Pure Drift in my closet. I used to race bicycles, well try to race, for a few years and the last two I just have not had the money or the time to dedicate myself to that anymore. I am a new husband and now a father of two awesome boys (5yrs, 9yrs) and I just don't have enough time to be riding 3-5 times a week for 2-5 hours at a time. Doing it less would just not be fun for me. So I find myself a runner.
I have ran a few times, like everyone in HS or when you're late for the bus... I even ran for about 2 months with my friend to get him back into shape and doing something (thus the brooks). As soon as he got into it I was back on my bike and never ran again until now.
I'm now heavier than I've ever been (195lbs) and very out of shape. I can say that I was for a long time a well conditioned athlete but it's been over 6 months since I've had any kind of discipline. So I started today with the 8 weeks to run a 5k app and I'm happy with the pace. I had tried other that had me walking only for weeks and I could not handle it and changed after 2 weeks (6 walks).

One question I have is are my shoes "dangerous"? Someone mentioned that I had minimal shoes and I should be careful, I only have about 60 miles on them but that sounds scary.

Hi there,


First, Welcome here to our forums. You have to be really excited to do this. Our apps are amazing


So, why would your shoues be dangerous???60 miles is fine. I go about 500 miles on a good pair of shoes. Look online for how many miles you can go on a pair of shoes.


Good luck and let us know.
