    I'm glad our blog helped to inspire you.  I think you'll find these discussion threads just as inspiring, if not more so.  We have a new thread each week, so feel free to hop on over to the current (as of the time of those posting) thread:

    Re: 200 lbs+ Nov 16th-Nov 22nd

    Hi everyone!  I'm a newbie, starting the Couch to 5k program this weekend and planning for my first 5k race mid January.  Any tips for the heavy girl starting out?  I've wanted to run a mini-marathon for years and hopefully 2010 will be the year.  Guess it comes down to giving up the bad behaviors and excuses to "just do it."
