Here's my advice as a late-blooming jogger. I picture Bill Murray in "Stripes" doing that little shuffle jog with the other soldiers. My jog is about that speed, and I find I can go for really long distances while breathing steadily and without passing out or collapsing. I found this pace by simply trying different speeds and lengths of steps until it just felt "right". This is how I would define "pacing" myself.
I never ran till I was about 44. After losing 60 lb. on a low carb/high protein diet, I started walking a little on a treadmill and worked up to long, enjoyable daily walks. I've since lost a total of 100 lbs through changing my diet to natural and organic whole grains and vegetables, and walking a lot. I do a little jogging now and then for fun and it feels great.
Pave yourself, train, drink water( but not too much or you'll get a cramp), eat healthy, and eat peanut butter before you go. ( it gives you energy) my mom and I are running a marathon in October, so I've figured out some things that help with running.
When I go for a run I usually pace myself the entire time and around the last few yards, 50 or so, I sprint as fast as I can. I find that doing these quick sprints increases my endurance and miles have always been easy. Just pace yourself, drink water before you run so you don't get cramps, and just run :)
build up your endurance, find a decent pace for you, and breathe in your nose and out of your mouth. remember to relax your body(meaning shoulders.) 90 degree ar movement from your hip to your chin. If your tall, then you especially would like to stride big. build up your endurance, find a decent pace for you, and breathe in your nose and out of your mouth. remeber to relax your boyd(meaning shoulders.) 90 degree ar movement from your hip to your chin.

anyone can pretty much run a mile without stopping its all in the mind once you convince yourself not to stop running you soon forget about how tired you really are, all of you are right as well. those are the steps to getting to this point though, if you wanna know more just post a comment on this profile or something. ^_^
When I run, I always force myself. I tell myself to keep running. Imagine that there's monsters running after you, or a wild animal. You will always run fast and force yourself to run faster so you will be able to survive. Force yourself, but don't go too hard on your body. It's not good. If you feel like you're gonna pass out, stop and count to 10 slowly :)
I was gonna be in track, because I'm a fast runner.
I have recently been asked to run a timed mile, and I had too much of a fast start, which had me ending up one of the last few people to be running, stopping at around 10:05... So pacing yourself and not going overboard when you first start running will be the best idea if you want to run a mile without stopping. TANZANIA... haha.
