I'm 40+ years old and I love running. I finished the C25K program several times and I met my first objective which was to run my first 5k before I turned 40. Ya!! What followed was some personal training setbacks (some out of my control), but I always returned to my love of running. This past year, I did not abandon running, but tapered off my training schedule. I am now on track with a new focus and new goals. I'm back with SparkPeople to help me achieve those personal training goals, just as it has in the past. :) Completed Actions: C25k program 1st Halloween Fearless 5k (10/2011) - 31.48 Virtual 5k - done Med City 5k (05/2012) 30:52 Color Dash - 2014 New goals Spring Summer 5k - TBD Monster Dash 5k - October 2016 1st 7k - March 2017 Bridge to 10k - future

    Hi Michelle,

    thank you for your comment on my blog! emoticon I'm glad to see you in the 30 DS challenge as well! It'll be nice to have so many of us encourage each other! emoticon emoticon [I've never finished Jillian's all 3 levels before either, by the way! Always dropped out! LOL]

    Have a great day!
