My first day!

Well, I'm going to start to run again very slowly.  I'm excited about this program that my son told me about!  Wish me luck, I'm starting today!

    My first day!

    Best of luck, Susie. My wife's running has been put on hold due to some type of hip problem that won't go away. She's been to about 5 different Dr.s/specialists so far. She is rather upset, as she wants to be running again this spring when the local races start up in earnest. Kind of starting all over when she does get going, though. She'll be taking it slow, too.  The big thing she has going for her is she wants to do it.

    Sounds like you do, too. Good running!

    My first day!

    I am starting over too.  I have managed to go from running maybe once a month to once a week to twice a week. Next week I am shooting for three runs!
