Started C25K!

As a personal goal for myself, I started Couch 2 5K.  Being born with a heart condition made it hard to run/jog, and it was always an embarrassment in school when I was so far behind everyone else when we had to run the mile.  PE teachers didn't take me seriously, and that made it even harder.  Because of that, I grew up HATING to run.  I dreaded it.  I would do anything I could to get out of it.  It wasn't enjoyable, and I got it in my head that I couldn't do it.  Now, I want to prove to myself that I CAN run a 5K.  I want to do it, and I'm going to do it.
I took pictures and weighed myself before, just to see what kind of difference happens.  

I don't want to lose weight, because I'm happy with where I am right now, I want to do this because I want to be able to run and know that I can do it!

Maybe if I actually stick with it we can run together. WHEN YOU COME HOME FOR A YEAR. That was really just an excuse to use caps to express my excitement ;-)
