I ran a marathon in January, it just took the entire month to do it! Looking at my total miles for the month I am amazed. I went from no running in 2009, to nearly 30 miles in January. It is hard to believe. And I actually enjoy it.
When not working out I've been reading running related books from the library. I just finished "Marathon Method" by Tom Holland. I liked it. Practical advice for a new runner and a few great stories. His workouts are good too.
