5k-Kara

Wow, I'm tired! Tonight, for the first time, me and my running pals ran 5k without stopping once! Woohoo! Go us! We did it in about 32 minutes, which is really good considering 3 months ago running 2-3 minutes was torture for us lol. Our race is next Saturday, and although I know I probably won't win, I am proud of myself for doing it. And I didn't need a personal trainer, muscle milk, hard-core programs, or anything, just a pair of shoes and some friends :) We used the Couch to 5k program at www.coolrunning.com and in just 3 months have gone from barely running a few minutes to running 3 whole miles! I really am so proud of us :D

Congratulations! I've been "jogging" with the dog at night....when it's very dark and I won't see anyone I know (LOL). I love the feeling of a good run...but then again I'm only running about one mile at a time.

I have been running for about two years. I am involved with a local running group. I have made so many new friends this way. I am by no means fast, but there is something to be said about increasing your time or running your furthest. You might win a trophy depending how many people are in your age group. Even if you don't, you are only competing against yourself and where were you before you discovered Couch to 5k? Great job!
