It's taken longer than expected to get this down, but here goes! I can't believe I'm actually a triathlete. I remember I dated a triathlete in college and I thought, while it was super cool to date one, why on EARTH would someone want to do t... Read more

Has it really been THAT long? Gosh, I swear it was just yesterday. Have faith, my sparkies, that I didn't give up and quit....I've still been running and exercising, I just haven't been on SP. Life got away from me I guess. That's all I can real... Read more

I am, once again, a runner! Two months was far, far too long. One month of struggling and pushing too hard to overcome "The Great Tripping Incident of 2011" and not really coming out of it, and then another month of no running whatsoever to f... Read more

Not running sucks. It wasn’t until I couldn’t run that I realized just what running has brought to my life – both mentally and physically. I’ve been super stressed…work is insane; husband lost his job, son is starting kindergarten, money ... Read more

I run for various reasons...I run to lose weight, to be fit, and to have more energy to be with my family. I run to work through stress and to clear my mind. I run because of the high you have afterwards, and I run because I CAN, when I always t... Read more

My First 5k Race!

When I started researching C25K back in January and noticed the different results people were getting with running, I really never thought that I'd be able to do run and entire three miles, all at once. I never believed it would work... Read more

...turned out to be 2 10 minute runs with a 1 minute walk in the middle. I'm not sure how I feel about it. My W5D1 and W5D2 runs (3x5 mins and 2x8 mins respectively) went really well. I felt strong and in control, BUT it was also the treadmi... Read more

I did it! I freakin' did it! I ran for a whopping five minutes at once. YES! Two weeks ago, when I started C25K Week 3, I almost cried/died two minutes into my three minute run. I had to repeat Week 3 because the three minute runs still we... Read more
