You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip

Good ol' Clovis New Mexico where we don't consider it wind unless it's in excess of 30 mph. Other than that it's a gentle breeze.
Get up early to run and it's freezing. Wait til later and the breezes will knock you over and take your breath away!
Just did the Bataan at WSMR. I challenge you all to give that a shot next year on March 27th, 2011.
Grand Rapids, Michigan here - I'm from the eastern side of the state (Ann Arbor), but went to college and got a job over on the west side. Started C25K in January, but am currently on a slight hiatus and just run when I can because I'm a tax accountant and it's a little bit busy this time of year. My husband and I are registered for the Fifth Third River Bank Run 5K on May 8th, hopfully in the 3 weeks after April 15th I'll be able to get up to 3 miles...
Currently Plymouth, Michigan.

I'm a 41 yr old female from Colorado. Running was never my "thing" due to bad junior high experiences of being forced to run "the mile" with undiagnosed asthma. I'm looking for something new and would like to try a couple 5Ks by this summer.

Ouch! You poor thing!
Growing up, I was never into exercise either (I was always the kid who was picked last in P.E.).
Walked my first 5K in February (I have another one coming up in two weeks). Just now getting into running.
