Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Starting Out

Today is the first day of the "Couch to 5K" program I've started. My thinking is that starting with a C25K program is a good way to transition into running, because I am not a runner but I will be. I just got back from my first run/walk, and I am not dead so we will chalk that one up as a win.

Let me give you a little background on myself. I started my weight loss journey in January, and oddly enough it wasn't a resolution, I was just fed up with the way I was looking and feeling. I joined a gym and hired an awesome trainer. I've lost a LOT of weight and it's still coming off. More importantly, I am starting to feel so much better physically and about myself. 

Here's a picture I took the week I joined the gym, it's not a full body photo but you get they idea.

I can't believe how great you look, and I can't wait to see you in more photos once you drop some more. Not for anything, but I also can't wait to see you run in a tutu!

Jennifer, my question to you is who doesn't want to see us running in tutus?
