Yep, that is right. Out of shape, non-runner me, is going to run the Seattle Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon with my sister and brother (mom too, with any luck). I may as well warn you now, this may be a painful process for me.
However, I am happy to report my first "run" which most actual runners would literally laugh out loud at. William sent me a link to this training program, for extreme beginners. The goal of the training program is to go from couch to 30 minutes of running straight in 8 weeks. If that sounds as ambitious to you as it did to me, you probably need to do it too :).
So back to my first "run". I came into work early (for those of you who don't know I already come into work pretty darn early (6:30 to be exact)) and then started my workout on the little gym in the office. It was actually a really hard workout for me 1 minute running followed by 2 minutes of walking - repeat 10 times. Even though it was super tough, I did it and it felt awesome!!
Here's to a healthy happy 2009!
