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 57....so 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.
