Off the couch!

My brother Michael and I will be running the Cooper River Bridge 10K on April 5th. I used to run... before I started having children some 14 years ago. I am not a stranger to running, just a distant relative.
In order to get my non-running form in shape I started a training program titled "From Couch to 10k in 10 weeks". Today was my second day. This first week is pretty easy; 4-6 days of two miles walking/running an 1/8 of a mile at a time. 2 days down...68 to go!

Good Luck!

I suggested to Michael that he do the couch to 10K in 10 weeks too. His response? "It's not that far".

Haha. You might end up having to carry him :)

Hey, It s Anne. You know, the Dixon one that moved to Europe. Anyway...
Good for you! Let me know if you reach the 10k. I don't think i can ever go back to running, (it's been about 25 years since i last ran, in other words, before puberty hit) but i have gone back to riding a bicycle and lost some weight that way... :)
