Run Forrest.....Run!

OK I wasn't going to tell anyone but  I am attempting to become a  runner.  I was afraid I would quit but now I am on week 6 of this program: Couch to 5k and there is no turning back.  If you could see me....I'm not really built like a runner....and at 5"3 I am hardly a gazelle but you know...I'm getting it done.

My friend Lindsay and I were motivated by my sister-in-law who started the program in January and now runs 10k several times a week.  Oh and did I add that my sis-in-law is we thought there was no excuse for us not to try.  We run in the evenings along a dirt road beside a lake and the scenery is lovely and we chat as we run (when we are not doing the "ugly breathing" as Lindsay calls it).  It's fun and I hope we can complete it....we are going to reward ourselves with some new running clothes even though we have decided "spandex is a privilege, not a right".

Oh...and have you seen anyone wearing these?  All I can think of when I see them is...tree frogs.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for your book recommendations...I reserved both from the library...I have already read much of what everyone suggested, so I was excited to see add something new to my list.
    Good luck with the running...I just can't do it. It hurts my brain. :)
