  2. yay for running again ! and mental health too.. after a bad asthma attack recently, I realized that breathing is not over-rated.. nor is being not depressed.. The depression meds will have odd effects on weight - for my experiment of one, the first added about 10-15lbs, another two in combination were neutral but after going off the Prozac, the other on its own added 10lbs - couldn't run it off in any case. don't worry about the weight, for a while anyway. new running buddies are good too.. excellent !

  3. It's nice to have a marathon that turns out better than you anticipate, as it often goes in the other direction. Meeting that supportive running group was a godsend! Winters in Iowa are a tough time to train for a marathon, but in January '09 I was slogging thru the slush trying to get ready for Birmingham/Mercedes when I ran into another old fart who was training for a half in Florida. Not only was he almost my age, he had - like me - been in Peace Corps/South America, spoke Spanish, and ran at my pace. We have been best friends ever since and still run together. "Miracle" is a bit too strong, but it was a stroke of incredibly good luck!
