I always soaked up other's posts about doing these things....hoping that one day, it might be me. Well, today was that day!
I took my fellow Sparker's advice (don't start out fast; pace yourself, no new shoes, etc.) and was able to run the whole way. It was much easier than I imagined!
If you would have told me 14 mo's ago that I would be down 6 sizes and running a 5K, I'd have laughed at you & asked what you were smoking.
Miracles do happen!
