It sounds like you're very determined! Keep us posted on your progress!! Enjoy the cold weather while it lasts!

Thanks for the support! I am not on a set program. I have a 2 mile track at my parents place that makes a nice distance to train. It has some incline and I can get off the path and run on grass if needed. My plan is to jog/walk this path every other day, increasing the jogging time every week. However, it is very cold here right now (-22) so I am going to workout inside until it warms up. emoticon

Welcome to the group!! Are you following any specific program? I'm a beginning runner also, and am following the C25K program through the podcasts. That's great that you've already run a race--so now it's just getting back to that point! You can do it!!

Hello, I am not a runner at this point but I would like to be. Several years ago I joined a running group with a friend and we ran a 3 mile ice breaker race. I enjoyed the training and thought that running might be my thing but never followed through. Since that time I have stopped smoking and have gained about 35 pounds. I am hoping to gain some inspiration, drop a bunch of pounds and become much more fit. My goal is to run the 5 mile in the Ice Breaker. 2009 may be too soon to try this, but by 2010 for sure I want to be running across the finish line. emoticon
