    Just starting this program this week in prep

    for a 5k mud run in July. This was suggested to me by a friend and looks totally doable. And I have never ran before. Love the gym but not a runner. So here we go!

    C25k Here I Come!

    I hated running, the thought of running, all of it. Four years ago I started walking/jogging and really enjoyed it. I lost about 50 pounds and I felt great! When I went jogging it was "me time" I could reflect and almost meditate. I stopped doing it and I am so disappointed in...

    Going To Start The C25k This Week.

    Wish me luck. I hate running, and the only decent podcast I found was techno, which I think is going to cause me to hate techno forever.

    I Will Be Starting Sunday

    I have done the C25K and got up to week 4 and stopped because I had no gym membership and winter was beginning to kick in. Although that isn't an excuse I got a membership today and I plan on doing the program and making running a part of my regular routine. I remember how good I...

    Just started week two on this program

    and I have to say..think it's a natural progression for me..I'm not only from a family of several runners, but I've been walking 15,000 steps everyday including my elliptical so think I just needed a new activity to mix it up and motivate me. I will run my first 5K this summer...
