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!"

My brain woke up

I was so excited this morning to think we had made it to the half-way point. While sitting at my desk and getting ready to grab a cup of coffee, however, I suddenly realized I was wrong--we reach the half-way point only after Week 4 is completed and we are half-way into Week 5.

I'm glad that little revelation didn't hit me at the start of our final run this morning. That might have done me in. That's part of the mental battle. I had best re-check any figures passed to this administration by its intelligence agency. ;)

I wonder, could it have been my subconscious mind trying to set me up for a failure? Naughty subconscious! Naughty!
