Hi, I'm running down my goals one at a time. My first goal is to lose some weight so I will be as fast as possible when I run my first marathon. They say you improve your pace by six seconds per mile for every pound you lose. That's a lot of speed, even if it's not that many pounds! So here's the plan: I want to run the San Francisco Women's Marathon in October of 2008. I hope I'll get a spot during registration.

Additionally, I just want to look and feel my best. I want to be toned and trim. I want to look and feel better when I reach thirty than I did when I was twenty.

    Hi.. I saw your post on the November challenge group and though that we had a lot in common both with our starting weights, end goal weights, and workout goals (although I'm not quite qure about a marathon for me.. but I love to run!!) So hopeing that we can motivate each other to stick to it!! Really 6 seconds off a mile per pound??? That's pretty cool!

    Good luck!!

    I saw your post on RUNNING. Tonight at 10pm on PBS they will reshow the NOVA episode this week on how they took 12 out of shape people and trained them for 9 months for the Boston Marathon. It is really worth watching. You can go to the site and read about TEAM NOVA, if you'd like to see that first. It really is interesting how they started out so fat and made it. Even the people who were NORMAL WEIGHT were found to be very FAT becaue they had such little muscle because of no exercise. Do try to watch the episode since you like running.
