Kricky: I love it when SO's and friends, family start supporting us and not putting us down. It just makes the journey that much easier.

WOOT!

June-That works for me! We can compare notes :-)

Kricky-So does that mean you're going to run with me in March AND May? :-) I'd love to have a buddy!! :-)

Well my husband shocked me...I thought if I told him, "I'm going to do a 5K," he would say something like, "What? You can't do that!" But instead he said, "Wow! That's awesome babe! I'm proud of you."

It's amazing how when you truly start to believe in yourself other people get on board and stop doubting what you're saying. 99% of all the other times I've tried to lose weight I would talk the talk, but not walk the walk. Now I'm doing both and my hubby totally sees the difference! Go me!

I'll check it out. I didn't see any off hand. Tell you what. If I can't find anything for that day I'll run that day by myself as a 5k and time myself. Ok?

You should go look and see if there are any races in your area May 16... that would give you plenty of time to train, and we could run on the same day :-)

Lol. It would be nice if someone had a race that was at the same time/same day/same month/ across the whole country. That would be cool. I got something in the mail for a race at the end of January for Leukemia, but I wouldn't be able to do it quite that soon. Next year though.

June-LOL! I could never hit you with a smelly shoe...a clean one maybe (but I just couldn't pick up the smelly one...ick!! LOL). At least you got a little bit of running in. I hate it when I get dehydrated. Other than that, it sounds like you're doing great!!

Kricky-LOL! The Feb. is a run/walk, if you're interested. I'd LOVE the company!! :-) If you can't make it, then you should definitely do the May one with me!! Hubby can't (he's on duty for the USCG that weekend), and I'd love the company! :-)

Maybe I'll be in good enough shape in May to go with you! I'd say maybe the March one but I think C25K will take me a little longer to finish.

But AWESOME for you! Now get out there and make some tracks!

That's ok Bree. I tried Wk4. I got half way through only cause I forgot to drink anything today before going out. Stupid me. Go ahead slap my hand. Hit me with an old, smelly running shoe. I got to the first 5 min run and I felt good. I was awfully tight in the hips, so might need to stretch more. Or could just be cause I haven't really run in a week. I could carry on a normal conversation with myself so that was good. Felt like I couldn't breathe. Bit weird. But when I went to do the 2nd 3 min run my mouth and throat were dry, even with my gum in my mouth and I was getting a headache.

i jogged with my mom's beagle today. it's really sad when a fat girl can out run a beagle. he's about 10 though and he's kinda fat himself. but it made me feel good to out jog a beagle. :o) hope your training's getting off to a great start.

Lol Bree: No hangover here. Got to that, "hey I can still write and be coherent but man the room needs to quit spinning" stage. Lol. I never get hangovers.

I like to map my route on run.com. You just type in the starting address and zoom down to street level. Then you put the markers in and such. It tells you how many miles you've run. I think mapmyrun is the same thing. Run is through runners world.

I am SO super excited!! I can't wait to get the first one under my belt...it's just down the street from my house, actually. LOL. And I'm so very glad that hubby agreed to do it with me. It will make it easier, I think.... :-)
