A journey starts. . . steps. . . er,how does that go?

Point is, I've decided I'm doing the Couch to 5K program. I am. I'm going to do it. Have I mentioned that I pretty much hate running? Does this mean I've lost my mind? I think it just means I'm ready to get the ol' heart rate up and be more fit and this is a very attainable way to do so.

I did my first work-out with their interval schedule tonight and I DID IT. It was hot. It was difficult. But, I DID IT. I feel great. I'm hoping this feeling will carry me through the next work-out. . . and the next. . . and the next. . .

Stay posted for updates. I'm determined to run, just to prove to myself that I can. So if you see a fat girl trotting down the side walk, feet barely leaving the pavement, know she is on her own personal journey, full of determination and pride. Encouragement welcome.

Yizow. You must do a 5k if for nothing other than a free tshirt. I'm easy like that. I love me some free race shirts. Makes me feel all productive and stuff.

Very, very... unbelievably proud.

And, yes, I agree with Little Sister. The free t-shirt is totally sweet.
