Hello everyone. This seems like a really supportive community. I heard of C25k years ago but only now have decided to try it. I am spending the late summer somewhere idyllic for outdoor activity, and I thought, if not now, then when? And a coincidence landed me with a brand new pair of good running shoes. My goals are to get fitter generally (i.e. run for the bus without having passers-by looking for the nearest defibrillator) and to lose weight. A trigger was an NHS health check at which I realised that even if I lost a pound a week for a whole year, I wouldn't fall into the BMI underweight category. Something has to change. So here I am. Last week I set off, and today I completed all of week 2. The app makes it easy, and Laura's voice is so encouraging.
Oh, and my name? "OneStepAtATime" was already taken, so I thought, maybe later I might use the rhythm of the pace to learn some poetry. There's got to be an app for that too.
