Mission Accomplished!

After my bout with pertussis a year & a half ago, I thought I'd never run again.  My lungs still aren't the same, but I'm thankful to report that I CAN do strenuous exercise again!

I recently completed the Couch-to-5k running program, which is such a great place to start for non-runners.  It's just enough to challenge you and increase your endurance, but not so intense as to be discouraging.

On Tuesday I ran the full 5k (3.1 miles)!

I'm not super fast, but I have plenty of time to improve my pace between now and Race Day:  July 4th.  I feel really great, and I am hopeful that I may actually end up ENJOYING running more, as I train and learn further.
