I’m running for my health. I’m 41 and married with 3 children. I have PMDD (look it up if you don’t know in case you have other women in your life with symptoms like mine) and I need to run to help me. 

My doctor wants me to lose weight before June or she will be putting me on meds for high cholesterol. I don’t want any meds. 

Im a former runner from my high school days, but it’s been a LONG time and the couch loves me. 

Im hoping I will not give up this race! 

My hope is to some day run a 1/2 this year. 

Why are you running?

Sounds like you have good motivation for running. Isn't it great when something as simple as running can help with health problems?

My motivation is just to see if I can run a 5k. It occurred to me that since I can walk that far I might be able to run that far. The benefits of running, such as  losing weight and better physical and mental health are added benefits.

I am currently on a weight loss journey of my own. I’ve lost 60lbs since August 2018, and I have 171lbs to go. 

I have never been a runner, but I want to condition myself to jog/run by May for a 5k. My sister and I are signing up for the color run. I’m doing a 5k walk the week before the run, which I’ve done the walk before. Now I’m ready to push myself more in hopes of completing a 5k run.
