My C25K experience - for other moms especially :)

Just finished the C25K program!  I blogged about my experience and how training went and thought I'd share it here because it would have helped me if I had logged in here earlier to see what other new runners were doing!  My husband is a really experienced runner, and it can be a little demoralizing and hard to set realistic expectations for your running when the only comparison you have is someone who runs three marathons a year. 


Happy running!!!!



I write a running blog geared towards other new runners at!

    I loved reading your blog post.  I'm inweek 8 now, and looking ahead to that first 5K.  Trying not to worry about time (I'm very slow), and just focusing on going the distance.  There will be time to improve in the next race.  Not to mention, I know I'll at least achieve my Personal Record in my first race
