My name is Melissa, 20 years old, 110lb-5'3 yet had never been able to run farther than a quarter of mile without wanting to cry or puke. I came across the Couch to 5K program in May and by July 4th [at the 3th week of the program] decided to run the Sta Clarita Independence Day 5K. Results? 37.58!. I skipped a couple of weeks after that, and now I am on week 7 getting ready for the Lake Balboa Watermelon 5K Run 2011.
It would be so much more fun and encouraging to meet with fellow runners! [cofcof..icalledmyselfrunnerbahaha]. I live in Granada Hills, northern area of the San Fernando Valley, south of Santa Clarita and I am willing to drive a short distance to get together! I usually run right before the sun goes down, when there is light out yet is not hot-hot.
Anyone out there? My personal goal right now is to run a 5K under 25mins.. I am 12 minutes away from that! Seems far away.. Where are you at? How far before you reach your goal? Can your parents run faster than you? [I know.. makes me proud and embarrased at the same time x)]
