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!"

Just a quick check-in after a 5k

My last run was on Monday, July 26, so I wasn't expecting much today.  It was cool and rainy, and I would have preferred being out fishing to racing today. Still, all said, I managed to finish with a 40:45, a 13:03mm pace.  That's my personal best in a 5k.

  1. Congrats! That is fantastic...a personal best is always a special day. Do you have a goal-race time? I want to get under 35 minutes this fall and under 30 minutes by December 31st.
