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!"

Mrs. F

P.S. Mr. F is looking to possibly order some vibram five fingers to try out. I hope he does!


  1. You have come almost twice as far as you have left to go! Congrats ;)

  2. I love my 5 fingers shoes!! I was even able to run faster in them then I usually do. Keep up the good work guys ; )

  3. Hi Mrs. F,

    This is jmdessart from the forum that Mr. F posted on during the C25K in fall 2009. I just started over on the c25k again and I remember how inspirational you guys were to me when I completed it last time. I've joined a new forum, but I thought I would check up on you guys too. It's good to see that you've carried on with the exercise. Congratulations!
