Couch to 5k!

I have been thinking about what to start out on for a while. Because this is supposed to be where I share my thoughts, ideas, opinions, and such, I'll start out with what I'm excited about today. Running. For those of you who know me, you know that I suck at running. Seriously, I can look like a boneless chicken flailing about for about 2 minutes and then I'm spent.

My New Year's resolution was to run a 7 minute mile, but I'm gonna take it a step further and follow the Couch to 5k program. I'm hoping to get to do some marathons this spring/ summer!

I stopped by Runner's Roost today and picked up these puppies...

Pretty sweet, I know. The guy that helped me out was really nice. He analyzed my run. Apparently one of my legs lands differently than the other? Anyway he knew who Michael Buble was so that scored some bonus points with me.

The shoes are from a company in Boulder- Pearl Izumi. ( I like to buy locally when I can. They have a pretty cool marketing campaign with funny videos.

I have downloaded some podcasts from to run to. I'm kind of embarrassed to say but this is my first podcast! Eeeeee! I'm counting on you all to keep me as motivated as I am now.

Watch for more blog entries soon, I'll let you know how the running program goes as well as other projects I'm working on. There are always about a zillion of them, and I sort of lose sight of them. Hopefully this little bloggety blog will help me to organize myself.


  1. Marathons? MARATHONS? As in more than one? Are you nuts? Do you know how long a marathon is? 5k yes, 10k maybe, but a marathon (s)?
    You go for it - I'll be cheering you on!

  2. I'm in!! Ready to watch for your next Blog, vlog and photos!! Keep the posts comin' ... !! And best of luck on the couch to 5K program..

  3. Welcome to Blogland! Glad to see you are Up and Running! :)
