Nice to meet you, Jonathan! (Btw - that's one of my favorite guy's names!)
Ain't being a runner grand?!?

Just wanted to check in and introduce myself. I'm a relatively new runner (Sept. '08) from the great State of Alabama. I've had a SP profile since '06 but have recently become active on here. I originally started my quest to get into shape and lose weight last March and on a whim signed up to run a 1 mile fun run in August, even though I couldn't run a mile non stop!! After that I began running/walking. . . or walking/running in my neighborhood, slowly working my way up over a mile and now even I am amazed at how far I've come. I'm excited about the new year and I think I've been bitten by the running bug. As evidence of that, I signed up for my first ever 5k on March 7th!!!
