"We have to love until it hurts. It is not enough to say, I love." We must put that love into a living action, and how do we do that? By giving until it hurts." Mother Teresa

It's been a long time...

Since I got my lazy ass to the gym, but I got there today! I have several friends start the Couch to 5k running program. And today I finally started.

Week 1 Day 1: 1.41 miles 30 minutes

I am feeling pretty good. I downloaded a very helpful podcast that keeps track of the times for me. It is a British woman named Laura who tells the listener when to do what. I think what I enjoyed the most is that the whole thing took less than an hour! Perfect commitment for me right now. The music isn't too bad.

My goal is to be able to run the 5k Race for a Cure in April for my first official 5k.

I am So Proud of you! I may have to enroll in the Race for the Cure just to Cheer you on! Laura is cool, I think you'll like her, Kathleen and I enjoy making fun of her accent. ;)
