reasons for running...

My first 5K is three weeks from today. I'm getting kind of excited. This upcoming week is finally our last week of the C25K. What was supposed to take 9 weeks ended up taking me just over 4 months. But here I am, about to be running 30-minutes nonstop.

I may have touched briefly on my reasons for running. I'm not sure, but here's the skinny. One day, I woke up and realized just how lethargic I'd become. When lying on the couch, I found it more and more difficult to just sit up, let alone stand up. I had no energy and was slowly putting on more and more weight. So, I started running.

It has made such an impact in just 4 months. My self-esteem is the highest it's been in years. I feel accomplished. My waist is shrinking. And it's great knowing that it's only going to get better from here.
