Welcome to! Running Mania is an online community of runners from across Canada with the purpose of encouraging and supporting runners of all ages and abilities. We welcome beginners, elites, and everyone in between to join us in sharing our knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with each other. We also have a very enthusiastic group of multi-sporters in our midst, so you can connect with others involved in duathlons, triathlons, and the like.

Running Wisdom....
I started out 30 lbs over weight, blind in one eye, glaucoma and cataracts in the same eye, 3 or so dried out disks in my back, lungs attempting to recover from 30 years of abuse and a 85% functional ticker. Now I sit and try to improve every day, I continue to run as much as possible and to this date have run numerous 10 and 5 k events, a few half marathons, and this past June a full marathon. An old Bob Seger song Against the Wind sums my new life up with one line, "I was living to run and running to live." It is amazing how the body recovers, I am the most relaxed when I go out and run for an hour. I have come from being able to walk around the block to running for hours on end. (garth)
