I just started the Couch to 5k in January, but I'm dreaming big. I'm on week 7 and not anywhere near 5k yet. But I hope to reach marathon potential by next March. Most people probably walk faster than I run. Though I can jog for 25 minutes, and I can't wait to get up to a whole hour of jogging!
I joined this community of Marathon Running to keep my goal in sight. I used to jog back in the late 70s and early 80s, but haven't run for 30 years now. I was slow back then too (fastest was about 5.5 hours for Catalina Marathon, I came in last...literally, with an ambulance behind me. LOL).
Anyway, I want to be able to run again. A 5.5 marathon would be like FLYING to me, but I'm more of an egg (or potato) at the moment. I'll probably just be a lurker here, not posting much, but watching everyone's progress and ideas...until I get up to the big 20 miles. Then I'll be ready to register to run a marathon!
May the wind be at your back
and the beer flow freely.
