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!"

Not bad, considering...

I actually feel pretty good, considering I ran 4.24 miles yesterday.  I can feel it in my quads, but I had expected to feel it in my lower back.  My quads aren't too bad, either.  I only really notice it when stooping, or when going down the stairs.  Going up feels fine.

Mrs. F has asked me to run again in the morning.  Though I need to get in to work early tomorrow, I just may go for that run (though I don't think I'll be trying for four!).

Good night.
