I will be 31 in August 2009.

Started at about 40-42 lbs of fat, 187 or so total weight early spring 2009 for about 22% body fat.

Goal is to get to about 30 lbs of fat at 175 lbs for about 17% body fat while gaining muscle mass.

June 1, 2009 -- Down to 175 lbs, changing goal to 170 for now, although I'd like to gain more lean mass while losing a bit more fat.

Do shoes really make a difference?
I am not so sure. From what I've read, the injury rates amongst runners have not changed since the fancy expensive running shoes became popular about 30 years ago, in fact there have been studies that have shown that people with more expensive running shoes are more likely to get injuries than people with cheaper running shoes.

I am pretty interested in this subject as I am training to jog a Marathon in October, and have just put on somewhere in the range of 100-120 miles in my Converse All-Stars over the summer (including a half-marathon two weeks ago and 17 miles last week).

I'll probably be going to a local running store to talk with them about the shoes within a week or so, but I've also been seeing a lot of people recommend running barefoot vs any shoe at all (granted, if you've been walking and running in shoes, no one is recommending a sudden full switch to barefoot).

Here's one recent article on the subject:

"Now, a small but growing body of research suggests that barefoot is the way adults should run, too. So, many runners have been shucking off the high-tech trainers in favor of naked feet — or minimalist footwear like Nike Free, the Newton All-Weather Trainer and the glove-like Vibram FiveFingers."

And one more

"And if you must wear shoes, it turns out that the less shoe you wear, the better, because expensive running shoes are no better than cheap ones, and wearing expensive running shoes actually increases your odds of getting injured by 123%."
