A friend and I started running last week. We’re doing the Couch Potato to 5K plan…

I ran track in high school. Not well, mind you. A friend dared me. Well, actually, he said, “I bet you can’t run a mile.” And I joined the track team to prove him wrong. I never won a race. But I perservered. I ran. And ran and ran.

That guy? He married a triathelete. I guess he just liked girls who ran.

After high school, I never ran again.

But I’m very proud of myself. I went 1-3/4 miles today.

There’s a charity 5K in June that lots of my friends are signed up for. I’m thinking about doing it.

I’m either optimistic or crazy.

Or both.

Note: The picture is not me or my friend. We just wish we could look happy and calm (not to mention in perfect shape) like that when we run!

  1. Yeah Wendy! I just started running in January – ran never a day in my life until then. I’m to 10 miles a week. Not a lot, but it’s great and I’m doing my first 5k next Month!

  2. Congratulations! You’re doing great. Beware of long-term effects. One of my classmates is 60 and he was a runner for about 30 years. His knees are now shot.
