In the Beginning….my journey from Couch to 10k

In the beginning…

I didn’t even WANT to run a marathon.  I just wanted to run a 10k…finish what I started…DO what I said I was going to do.

About to run my first 10k! Vulcan Run 2010

Running has changed my life…I like to call it “free therapy” 🙂

I shared my “journey” from couch to 10k with my Facebook friends & I wanted to share it with you too!  They have been with me from the first grumpy step, all the way to the marathon finish line.

If you are just getting started running, I believe that you will relate to my journey.

Here is a link to my FB journal: IN THE BEGINNING…my journey from couch to 10k

We all started somewhere!  You won the day you decided to try!

Don’t quit!  You’re worth it!
