I have always HATED running. just could not do it. Also smoked. I am nearly 50, quit smoking, gone on a diet, joined a gym and am determined to get healthier. SO I am now challenging myself with the C25K WHICH IS HUGE for me. My best friend and I skived the school cross country run to smoke (!), that's how impossible it was.
This year i walked 5k for charity. My target is to RUN it next year.
