Don't call me a quitter..

but you may call me a very long delayer-er.

Nearly two years ago I began a training program called "Couch to 5K." It's a running regime that gets you literally off the couch, and running a 5K (without stopping) in 9 weeks. I did the program for about 2 1/2 weeks before I quit. I had a cold, so I skipped a few days, but then never started back up when I got better.

Fast forward a few months (okay, about 20), and I decided to start over. As one of my very honest, and very right, friends pointed out on Facebook, "Haven't you done this before and quit after a couple of weeks?" Why, yes, yes I have. And there's nothing to say I might not finish this time, but I'm going to try! I'm currently on week three, day three of the program, which is farther than I got the first time around, and I feel great!

And now, I have a goal. On October 9th, there is a 5K in Tyler that I am going to register for. I've already got a couple of friends that want to run it with me, so I'm super excited! For the personal goal, for the accountability that friends bring, and for my abs!! They are already shaping up and it makes me happy :)

I am super proud of you! I should follow in your footsteps and do this as well. We should chat about this.
