  • This was extremely inspiring. I too am thinking about running. Walking briskly isn't quite cutting it for me and I admit I am a little scared to really run. I know I can run for short periods now but I definitely should push myself to see how much longer I can run!
  • OK, this was inspiring. It's all in my head. I just have to do it... slow and steady!
  • LOVE this article!
    Running is great and it makes me happy and healthy.
  • One of my goals has always been to become a runner, and this article totally gave me the faith that one day I will be able to exceed my own expectations and call myself a runner one day.
  • Running is the best! Good luck with your 5k, races are addicting so expect more in your future!
    Running -- the best addiction to have.
  • Good for you! I so, so wish I could still run. I had a hip replacement four years ago, and the surgeon told me in no uncertain terms I was never, ever to run again. So, I have to make up for it with lots of walking, swimming and biking, but I do still miss running! :-)

  • I never thought I'd ever run other than for reasons you describe in the beginning of your article. I was SPARKed to give C25K a whirl which I completed over the summer. Yesterday, I ran my first ever 5K (see blog by same name). What a fulfilling feeling to do what I thought was impossible!
  • Yay!!! It is fun, once you get the hang of it, especially on pretty days!
