You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Thank you, it is only a couple days away now. i wasnt a runner and it has also been an ugly road for me. It is supose to be in the 20s. but the run is also at noon. Im calling it a run even though it is a race because for me it will just be about finishing :)

Good luck with your 10K!

I'm a "new" runner as well. I ran my first 5K early this summer and am hooked. Just ran an exhilarating 3.8 miles at a temp of 34 degrees. Like you, this will be my first winter running outdoors. I'm hoping my enthusiasm remains high:^)

Enjoy your fitness journey. For me, it hasn't been easy (especially the running), but it has been so worth it.

Welcome to the team!

I think I enjoy running because of the challenge. Plus I know so many other people that run that it really keeps me going. Besides, if I don't run then what will I do with all of my running clothes? Winter is always a challenge. Just remember to dress a bit warmer and just get out there. The only time I won't run is if it's icey. Then I hop on the treadmill. Also if our windchills are bad I won't go out there either.

Good Luck and keep going!

Running is fun. I don't know why I enjoy it, but I do. And when my siblings ask if I am crazy, it tell them maybe, and I know where you live.

Hi Everyone
I am a new runner. Ive done a couple 5ks this year and will be attempting a 10k next weekend. I am looking for motivation and buddies to help keep me going through out the winter, and people to share and hear about others journeys.
