From the couch to a 5K in 9 wks......

OK....let's talk!
I hate exercise...hate it!!!
Always have!!!
BUT, I'm reaching an age where I just don't have much of a choice!!! Before babies, I was little bitty!!! Not anymore and I know that it's because of my lack of exercise! I have been really hard on myself lately and to top it off....my whole family is running and training for marathons!!! On both sides....my sister~n~law, husband, sister, brother~n~law and soon to be sister~n~law (hopefully)!!!!! Everyone is running and I'm feeling a bit left out!!!
So, I'm giving into peer pressure!!!
I have been walking regularly for the past few weeks...2 & 3 miles.
(drum roll please!)
Today I started....from the couch to a 5K in 9 wks!!!
This is a training program that my sister used and swears by it!!!
Go to here and check it out!
OK....who's going to join me?????
HELLO.....anyone?????
Mushroom Festival is in 8 wks.!!!!
Denise and I have found a house where they run the sprinklers in the mornings.....perfect for beginning runners!!!! HA! Denise did it this morning...I may join her tomorrow!!!

You can do it girl. Just follow a training program and work up to it. I'm really proud of you. I run all the time...inside! And I've never done a race.
