Hi everyone ! I am new to the forum but would like to introduce myself .

I am 59 yrs old , live in the Midwest , a farm wife ,mom to 3 adult kids and a Gigi to 2 and a 3rd that will join our crazy family in mid-Feb.

i have completed the C25K training module and am now into the 10K one . While knee issues may never have me running fast miles/times Or actually competing in 5k/10K’s ,I am doing this to get in the best shape possible ... I love jogging/running !!!

look forward to getting to ‘know’ others that are new or veteran !

Hi Gigi2three!

Welcome!

I am from the Midwest as well, have 4 kids and am grandma to 1! 

I just started running for the first time ever this past July and ran my first 5K in October. (In tennis shoes that were 15 years old.)

I just bought new running shoes and have decided that I am a runner and will keep on running 3x a week. I might even do another 5K in the spring. 

Way to go with running and taking care of you!

Welcome and congrats on finishing the C25K program, that's a great accomplishment! I love that you're doing this for you and your health. I have knee issues myself, which came on from running a few years ago, and I'm never really confident on how it will affect me going forward. If you have no interest in running in a 5K "race" no pressure at all, but don't think of it as competing. If you have a formal 5K near you, I would suggest giving one a try. I'm a competitive spirit, so that pushed me to do one, but the community, and the environment is AMAZING! You'll meet some great people and be inspired by all of the individuals you see out there. And when you approach the finish line and random strangers are cheering for you, it will give you a boost like no other! Good luck!
