Awesome job Taryn! great pace! Go for the 10K. I'm trying to find one around here for some time in the fall. There are a bunch of 5Ks, but no 10Ks.

Awesome job to all you completing 5Ks and even thinking about 10Ks!!!

You. Are. Inspiring.

W5D3 tried to do me in again this morning but I got through it on my second attempt! SO excited and I can't believe I'm thinking how "easy" those intervals are going to be on W6D1!

Hi everyone, noob to this thread.

I'm doing C25K too. I did W3D1 yesterday and I'm signed up for a 5K on Oct. 2. Its been tough going but I'm really excited about it.

My family and I are cruising on the Magic in November and I really want to be able to run the 5K on Castaway Cay. From there, who knows, 10K's, Half Marathons ... sky's the limit. I really just want to inspire my two daughters to live a healthy life and show them the importance of fitness, which is something I haven't done so far in their life.

I'm journaling my experience at my blog which is in my siggy. The plan is to keep myself accountable by dreaming of the disappointment of my many many readers if I don't keep it up.

Hello! Keep up the good work.

We ran another 32 minutes last night (around 3 miles, but we didn't get to measure it this time). I noticed my right foot felt like it was leaning in (like I lacked support at the arch) while running last night and my legs are a little rough this morning, I think I'm wearing out my running shoes.

Might be time to locate a buy one get one 1/2 price sale and get myself two pairs. I've been wearing the Reebok Simply Tone brand and really like them. But, does anyone have any other suggestions for brands or styles I should try out?? (I need a wider shoe which is why I like Reeboks.)

Since I just started running, I don't know alot about running shoes. But I do know that a lot of people like Asics. I have heard about their Cumulus shoe specifically. I haven't tried it, though. Right now I run in Nike Bowerman series running shoes. I haven't had any issues and they feel fine on my feet.

This morning I did W9D1 - so close to the end of C25K! 3 miles in 33:10 I'll take it!

I actually got up this morning (early) and completed W4D2. I woke up at 5 and was at the gym by 5:30. I'm hoping it will become easier with time (to get up earlier that is). I was able to finish the full cycle with only a little struggle today.

I hope yall are having a wonderful day!!!

I checked out your blog and GREAT JOB on your weight loss to date!!!

Your motivation (and current weight) is similar to mine...I have two daughters who I need to be an example to. And healthwise, I certainly haven't been!

Keep up the great job!

You ARE soooo close!!! That has got to FEEL soooo good!

I'm on W6D2 and I can't believe how the last 6 weeks have gone by so fast, how far I've come and how good I feel! I'm running further, running faster and have lost 15 lbs. I still have much further to go, a lot faster to run and way more to lose but these 6 weeks have shown me that I. Can. Do. It.

3 miles in 33:10! you're almost there.

I've been dreaming of crossing the finish line at my first 5K every morning to get me up and running. Do you think it'll look ridiculous to raise your hands in victory when finishing in the back of the pack? I just hope my wife has the camera ready! hehe

Tomorrow morning is W3D2 for me.
