The run!!

So many of my blog buddies are runners or have been nothing but supportive towards me as i embark upon a new part of my life, as a runner!
Well today was/is the start of the new improved, slimmer me!
I ran 1/2 mile in 7.09 minutes! I may not be setting records but it's a start..and i am glad i did it even if my legs aren't too impressed with the new plan. I guess i forgot to warn them!
Still i made that move today, it took 7 minutes out of my evening and i am still alive..what doesn't kill me does make me stronger right?
And yes, i do plan to run tomorrow night too..and knock at least a second off my time!!

Thanks for inspiring me and supporting me everyone.

I am so impressed with people who run! I can barely walk across the room without tripping over my own two feet, so I'm afraid that running might prove fatal. Maybe I should just exercise from the safety of my recliner. LOL

Good on you Gill.
I'm a walker and enjoy my walk everyday.
Running is so much more difficult, so I am definitely cheering you on.
PS Like avtcoach the wrong blog address appears on my list for you as well.

Oh, no... You got ahead of me. I remembered you were going to start running. I think I had planned to do the same, but ...

I must've had the date wrong.

But I'm so happy for you! Don't even worry about your time. You'll get faster without even trying. It's one of the side benefits!

I'll have to keep up with you better. Good luck!
