This was a week of obstacles combined with a huge desire to do-over.  I was discouraged and down because Friday is here and I had not started running yet. I was not going to let it get the best of me. I donned my kick-arse shoes (which, by the way, are totally not the right shoes for me to be running in even though they look awesome and are great for walking, so I’ll be buying new shoes.  Soon.) and went to the gym. I did week 1, day 1 (W1D1)  of the Couch to 5k program, but lost track of my times on the treadmill, so it was more of week 2 times and was about 50/50 run/walk times. I feel great. I’m ready for more, but have no fears of becoming an over achiever with this little jaunt.

My goal is the Fallen Heroes Memorial 5K in April.  Two days after the Bon Jovi concert, which I’m more way more stoked about than my first 5K run.

Hi, I’m Susan. I’m a runner.
