Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

I just want to take a moment to thank those who have opted to follow this blog. I think it's pretty cool, and Mrs. F and I appreciate the sense of support it brings. Seeing that list of followers really reminds us that someone else is watching us, and I believe it helps keep us accountable.


[On a related note, it appears that the Followers list is broken today (9/23/09). I reported it to Google, only to find that others were reporting the same issue. I hope they fix it soon.]
