Linda, just finishing is a great goal. I can tell you, from personal experience, that dead last feels pretty darned good! It is certainly better than did not try:)

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

WooHoo Linda! Awesome! Just relax and have fun with it. And remember to set your own pace when you start out because it's so easy to get caught up in how fast others start. But then you'll burn out too quick if you start too quick. I've made that mistake at times. But if I focus on my own pace and block them out, I often pass a number of those going along at my own pace. Many start out too fast and then can't maintain it and here you come chugging along in your world and pass them by. Good luck!

Yup finally taking the plunge I signed up for the earth day 5K at a local park I have been jogging on the treadmill for a couple of months and thought its time to push a little hard and try my hand at a 5K I never liked jogging before but I am enjoying myself on the treadmill so I am hoping it will be the same for outdoor running

I have been with SP for a few years I am in maintenance range for my weight right now I am looking forward to getting ot know you all
