Hi, I started running about 7 weeks ago and I ran in two 5k races so far. It is hard but I am enjoying it. I am signed up for another 5k in August and planning on doing another in September. I find that signing up for races helps keep me modivated. I know I won't come in first but I will finish!
Welcome, Andi! I'm pretty new to running too, just started in February with the Couch to 5k program. It's a great way to build your runs up gradually. It's hard work but definitely worth the sweat! Great job on your first 5k!!

That is awesome! I am new too. Just getting started, My 13 year old son and I have been running together. It is a breeze for him...more of a struggle for me. We are not only getting healthy, but we are spending some great quality time together.
Hello there! I am new to running for exercise. I've always hated running my whole life, but lately I've been seeing what great results runners have with loosing/maintaining their weight. I started walking/running about 4 weeks ago for 60 min. a day. I won't lie, it doesn't feel all that great. But then after a week and a half of pushing myself I was able to run at 4.0 for a whole 10 min! Woo Hoo! I was so surprised! But then the next day I got a sinus infection and had to quit running for 2 weeks. I'm all better now and have been running for the past 3 days, it's still no fun but I feel pretty good afterwards. And that's saying a lot! Today I managed to run a 5k in 57 min. I never would have thought that was possible a couple months ago! Anyway, I'm glad to be a part of this team and plan on spending many happy hours scrolling through the posts while I recover from my runs! -Andi
