Jump up and down, and SCREAM LIKE A LITTLE GIRL

Jump up and down and scream like a little girl...
That is exactly how I felt Saturday morning as I completed my first mile run in over 25 years (I even went an extra 10 steps, JUST TO BE SURE).
This week was huge I jogged, walked, ellipticaled, or rode a stationary bike 43.73 miles, which included that first mile (15 minutes) in over a quarter century, and a 20 mile bike ride (72 minutes).
I remember where I was when I started this whole ride, only because its been less than 8 weeks (January 11th) since my first workout, and I truly believe
"if I can, ANYONE CAN."
For many years I have been the ultimate "Recliner" (I dont sit on our couch) Potato. I have even joined a group on SP called C25K (Couch to 5K) just to help me prepare for our local Grubstakes Days 5k on May 30th (12 weeks away). If I happen to be able to complete it I will have gone from a literal SIT STILL (for years, even having to coach my volleyball team while sitting in a chair at practices), to somehow coming up with the completely STUPID idea to run in a 5k in less than 20 weeks of preparation.
Like I said if I can, ANYONE CAN.
I am even trying to CON-vince some of my friends and co-workers into joining me, "just for the "fun" of it. LOL
WHO WANTS TO JOIN ME???
On that sunny, Southern California, Sunday morning in May???
Hey, no worries we can recover on Monday because its Memorial Day and we get to sleep in, RIGHT???
ENJOY THE RUN
