Week one is done!

Today ends my first week of C25K. I am so glad that I started this program. I put it off for a long time. I was afraid of getting hurt. I was afraid of failing. I was afraid of falling. It took me a while to realized that all of my fears boiled down to a fear of looking foolish to others. I finally decided that I don't care about what others think. I want this, and it is for me. I have no one to please but myself.

Question though, is it too soon to sign up for a 5K? I think it might give me a tangible goal to aim towards. I'll finish my last week of the program during the last week of December. I'd like to sign up for a race on New Years Day. Any advice is welcome.
