I am apprehensive about tonight because it is always difficult to enter an environment willingly where you are the worst person there by a large margin. Even though my stomach is in knots, and I have a full arsenal of excuses as well as tears in my eyes, I am going. 1 week ago
I was embarrassed to see everyone else pull away from me so quickly and I realized just how out of shape I really am. It was disheartening and extremely overwhelming especially since I was paired with a woman in her 60s who could still run faster than me. Then something absolutely incredible happened. These other runners started encouraging me as they passed me. True, genuine, encouragement. It was the end of the workout and I was barely jogging to the finish line, yet determined to finish, when two other guys in my club ran with me the last 100 meters. These people and their willingness to see me succeed keep me from quitting. 3 weeks ago
I read a running magazine. I also watched several short videos by Gazelle Sports describing their different equipment – trail shoes, water packs, safety equipment. Today I ran about 5 miles. I’m starting to feel like a runner. 4 weeks ago

5 miles a couple days ago. I only stopped to drink and smell lilacs. I am now thinking that a half marathon is possible for me to complete. 4 weeks ago
