2 years...

I can't believe I almost missed this anniversary. 2 years ago on this date also was the first day of Spring...and it fell on a Monday. For a month or so prior to this date I had decided that I would start running. I decided to jump into the Couch-to-5k running plan (I skipped the first 2 weeks since I had been doing some moderate kickboxing workouts for a month or two and was not a complete couch potato).

My sole goal was to be able to run 3 miles a few times/week...nothing more ambitious than this. And to think I sit here already registered for my first marathon in early Oct. of this year...only 2.5 years after I first started. Wow. It's kinda surreal. 2 years ago I thought only "athletes" and crazy people ran marathons. Well, I've always been "crazy," but I guess now I am an athlete, too. Still slow, still pudgy (shut up, I'm workin' on it--running makes me ravenous)...but not AS slow. :)

One thing is for certain...I have gone though a whole helluvalot of shoes in 2 years! ;)
