I LOVE the Olympics. That track for luge and bobsled is crazy. I think secretly, in a different life I was a bobsled brakeperson. In another one, I was a speed skater. All the athletes are pretty much amazing. I agree about shin splints....any expert advice?

Shin splints are very common when you are just starting running. They can also be other more serious things, so watch them. I'd google them and follow the hints and tips to avoid them :) For most runners, they go away. There are stretches and other things to do to help alleviate them. I used to get them a long time ago. The reason the treadmill does not bother them, is that the surface is forgiving :) Try running on trails or grass. These are great surfaces, but watch your step, you could trip :p I try to do a combination of outdoor running and treadmill running. I should say, I am supposed to do a combination ;)
