Starting again at ground zero, I’ve discovered the elliptical machine. If I can keep this up for a few months, I may find myself on the way to a 5k in a few months!

How I did it: I finished Couch to 5k and then ran a 5k. Then my stepmom asked if I wanted to join Team in Training with her to train and fundraise for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco with her in honor of my cousin who died of lymphoma. I spent the next six months training for, and eventually running, that half. Somewhere along the line I accidentally got addicted. Running isn't easy and it isn't fun--I'll never be a natural runner--but it has changed my life, making me stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. There really is nothing in the world that compares to it. Read how I did it… 15 months ago

I use to run 3-4 years ago when I was in college for fun and was in the best shape of my life, I’m in pretty good shape now, but I want to tone up and make running a lifestyle. My goal is at-least 20 miles/Week and 80miles/Month I’m looking to do my first Marathon in November 2013, so with a healthy diet and training I should be good by then! 17 months ago
