I want to run a 5K

I checked with an online site called Active.com that shows activities in my area, and there are a few 5Ks that will be going on in the spring -- one in April, another in May.

I've never run more than three minutes at a time, and THAT was only once.  I have downloaded the Couch to 5K program on my computer -- now I just have to figure out how to get it onto my MP3 and start planning for this.

I've seen others I know do a 5K or half-marathon, and though I never considered myself the running type, I would SO consider this a feather in my cap and proof that I'm making this work out.

So... now it's in writing.  I don't want to just think about it, I want to say I'm going to DO it... because we all know what "thinking" about stuff does for us.

[For those interested in the podcasts that I'm referring to, you can find all 12 weeks here:  http://www.ullreys.com/robert/Podcasts/podcasts/podcasts.html .]


  1. I am not familiar with couch to 5k for mp3 players. How does that work? lol

  2. Well, it's the Couch to 5K program that some guy from California set some music to to get you conditioned in (I think) 12 weeks. I just have to learn how to download it onto my MP3 is all. But if you're not familiar with the program or the music, it's here:
