Some running terms for the non runner

One of my sponsors suggested that I teach a little runner's lingo on this website. This information will be included on a blog category page by itself for future reference.

Pace : The average time per mile during a run. I am a recreational runner and I generally run between a 7-8 minute per mile pace. A competitive runner , like someone who will win the race in philly, will run a 5- 5:30 minute per mile pace. I will run a marathon in 3 hours 20 minutes and they will do it in 2 hours and 20 minutes.
