Hi from MI


Recommended Posts

Hi fellow C25Kers - started the program 4 weeks ago (just finished week 4 day 3 this morning in my first rainy run). Been going good so far (although I'm a bit scared of next week...). I'm 41 and my weight has fluctuated dramatically all my life - in grad school I was at a great weight after a life style change, but slowly put on the pounds as my family grew (so hard to find time to exercise and eat well with two young boys in the house). I've decided enough is enough and I'm getting back in shape with another lifestyle change. So I figured, why not running? I wasn't a huge fan, but I know I need exercise in my life, and this plan looked perfect to ease into getting exercise back in the routine.


So far, I've taken off 10 lbs (goal right now is to lose another 40 and go from there, that'll be the same weight I was at back in grad school). I'm also getting ready to register for my first 5K in September.


The stories posted here have been extremely inspirational and I hope to add to the community and help to motivate (and be motivated) as we keep running on. Thanks for the great forum!
