Woke up to a good 3 FEET of snow this morning... so glad that I bought a treadmill yesterday so I can continue my training. I enjoy a good snow storm from time to time... makes me look forward to nice warm weather though!

Congratulations! When I began I had to get one as well... except it was because of Carolina summer scorchers and not snow! I highly recommend hooking up a tv in front of it if at all possible!

I'm in. Doing a similar thing with the Wine & Dine Half in November! (Need to train, ect.. rewarding myself with trip to Disney!!)

Now, I'm intrigued- you just started and you can run 2 miles at 14 minutes? That. Is. Awesome!!! I did the C25K last year and it took me a good 1.5 months to get to 2 miles. (I have to restart my training as I have not run since August). Anything over 2 miles, and my mile minute average goes up, up, up.......... I am very worried about getting swept in the 1/2! So I have to work hard at that. I guess I am just a slow runner.

Good luck with your training ,I will be following!!!!

Thank you!! To be honest though... my two miles were split. I took a break and went on the rower for 5-8 minutes and gave my legs a break. (I had just bought new shoes and it was making my ankles swell and ache.) I ran the day before yesterday and avg. a 16 minute mile. I may have strep throat... at least it's very enlarged... grr... but I am going to run/walk today. I haven't gone any farther than the 2 miles at once... so I'm sure it will affect my time. I need to be able to do a good 5 miles before we go to insure for the scavenger hunt too.

There are days I look forward to running... and days like today, that I think I'm crazy for even attempting it! I've come to a stand still with my weight loss too. Down 14lbs.. I'm still in the 240's... which is discouraging... but I have a lot of people rooting me on... and I all ready put in the $$$ so that is motivation enough.

Keep it up!!! You can do it... no golf carts allowed!!

Changed my mind.... Monday QS... Pizza Planet. We have never eaten here before, but I figure we could catch an early or late lunch here {aka avoid the huge lunch crowd} and cool off for a bit since we will have a long day here with no opportunity to head back to the hotel since we will have checked out all ready. I've heard mixed reviews, but it sounds like a good option for cooling off... and I am all about trying some place new.

As of today I am down 18 pounds! I ran my two miles, fighting the tail end of this cold... at 32:20. Getting there... slowly but surely. I am trying to push myself but not overdo it. I used to get shin splints in high school and I don't want to go that road again.

18 pounds. That is super awesome!! Great, great job!!!

I still only have made it to 1.5 miles as I get back in the saddle. I added some weight training in my regime for strength..only I'm a complete weight training novice..and well- let's just say- I can barely move now. 'Doh.

Good job on 2!! Keep it up!

Okay.... quick update! I haven't lost any more weight... still at 18lbs. Going to add my third mile on this week.... a little nervous that I won't be able to do it. I'm either going to be dead last.... or dead first! ha ha ha!! I will be back to post some photos and such soon!

I'm right at the same place. I added my '3rd' mile Friday. And by 3rd mile it means I made it exactly to mile 3. I didn't RUN mile 3 to mile 4.

I have so far to go to get to 13.1!!! I also have not lost any weight but that may be due to the copious amounts of Girl Scout Cookies I have consumed!

Ha ha!! Girl Scout Cookies are not helpful!! I hid two boxes in my house.

Mile by mile... that's what I keep telling myself. It went well though! I was shocked!!!! I need to shave off about 30 seconds from each mile, but I have 6 weeks to do so. I can't believe I made it through it to be honest. Self doubt is a very powerful thing. :/

Keep it up!!!

So I finally went outside.... and got my 5k Road Miles under my feet! I was able to do the 3 miles in 45 minutes!!! 15 minutes a mile and I only ran 1/3 of it. It was cold and raining, so I was having a hard time getting used to the breathing... seemed harder on my lungs with the cold air. BUT I DID IT!!!! I feel comfortable that in the next few weeks I can shave off a little more... not much, but a little or at least build up my running stamina. Yay!!! NO GOLF CART FOR ME!

I'm in. It sounds like you're off to a great start with that pace. I'm doing the same thing, training for a Disney race, although which race is yet to be determined by the kids' schedules and our budget, but I'm no where near a 15min mile for 3 consecutive miles just yet!
