Here I am one year later. Still weigh 157 but have lost MANY inches. I guess muscle is more important then weight.
I am jogging over 30 minutes now. I have come a long way since I started posting here.

Welcome Rosie! We are so happy to have you join us and run/walk is a fabulous way of running. I have been using it since my first day way back June 2009 and now training for my first full marathon.

Actually, research has shown that running strengthens knees and NOT cause damage. If you train correctly you will enjoy many mnay years of this wonderful activity. If you ever have any questions please feel free to ask.

Welcome and HAPPY RUNNING!

Hi I'm Rosie,
This seems to be the way to go in getting ready for a 5k. I had a total knee replacement and now am loving not sitting around in pain.
I know the running will wear out the knee sooner so I am happy with the jog/walk race. I have been participating in 5ks at least once a week here in Maine but never really trained.

I am looking forward to this new age technology...jogging with thousands of people but not bumping into each other.
Good luck everyone.
