15. I am not interested in getting faster or winning races. I run for fun and fitness. I'd like to find others who use the run/walk training method (i.e. Jeff Galloway, www.runinjuryfree.com , etc.). I've been doing this for a couple of years now and even though it might not be considered true running by some, it sure has helped me get over injuries and allows me to run farther and enjoy running more.
