I have started and nearly completed the C25K a couple of times. The last time, I was injured when I quit. That was almost 2 years ago. I have since then gained about 80 pounds. I want to start again, but I can't seem to make that first step. Its gotten to the point where I am embarrassed to even try running because I have gotten so large. I am 5'5" and 260ish pounds. I see what they are accomplishing on Biggest Loser, but its that first step.
I have a free weekend ahead of me. I have a few things to do around my apartment and some homework, but I have time. I am going to take that first step. I am going to start this weekend. Please hold me to that. I promise to tell the truth. I can't wait any longer.
The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start! John Bingham
Run when you can,
Walk when you have to,
Crawl if you must--
Just never give up.... Dean Karnazes
