is 2.75 miles in 21 minutes 31 seconds a good time for someone reasonable new to runnig to be getting?
will i just improve by keep runnig, and increasing speed, etc? i found that taking deep breaths, and holding for a few seconds before runnig decreases the chances of getting a stitch, has anyone else tried this, or know why it works? is it because it stretches the diaphragm?

That's about 7:49 minutes per mile, pretty decent for someone fairly new :)

Yup, basically :d Try not to increase too much too quickly, though, speed or distance, as you run a fairly high risk of injury that way. Keep it gradual, and your improvement will be surprisingly fast :d

There are loads of ways to fix stitches, that's one good one :) As far as I know, no-one's figured out exactly how we get them or how to make them go away yet...
