I'm saying all this for 3 reasons:
1. Running has saved me...I know that sounds dramatic. But it has give me something to look forward to these past few awful weeks. It's pumping life back into me, it's giving me happiness. Otherwise, I would have been crawled up in my bed every day after work crying. Instead, I sweat it out.
2. If you are thinking about starting the Couch to 5K program, DO IT. It seems overwhelming at first, but you'll be SO glad you did.
3. I want to remember this good feeling, to keep pushing myself to go further. I want to complete a 5K in October. After that, I hope to keep running, and possibly do a 10 K next summer in Atlanta. (Peachtree Race)
I had another reason, but I can't remember what it is...I've been up since 4 AM packing for Florida. I'm c-c-crazy!
If you are following my Tweets, I'll be tweeting on the way down and while I'm there. Cause I KNOW ya'll are dying to read them. Haaaaaaaaaaa. Things I'll definitely be doing: Drinking a lot of (good) wine, going to the beach, drinking wine, sleeping, eating, oh and hopefully exercising! J and I brought our workout clothes. Nothing like a little Florida heat to sweat out the toxins!
