Over the next eight weeks, I am going to do a program I found in Runner's World Magazine online. It is a program that turns a walker into a runner. It alternates walking and running over the span of 30 minutes for four days per week, walking for two days, and rest for one.
I have always wanted to run but let myself believe that I just was not built for it. Lately I have noticed (via Facebook) that a lot of my friends run. I know it will be a lot of hard work and determination, but I think I am finally ready to join them! Fellow runners, please share your pearls of wisdom with this noob! I need all the help that I can get and it is very much appreciated.
Hopefully, in the next eight weeks, I can post that I can continuously run two miles. That is my first goal. Wish me luck!

Went on my first run tonight. It was tough, but I stuck to the program and did great!
