Running...without anything chasing me

This is week 2 of my so called "running program". About 7 weeks ago 2 girlfriends and I decided to meet at 5:15am up at the church gym and WALK. Now this huge.....all of us up and at the gym and actually MOVING. That in itself was an accomplishment. Then after several weeks Allyson suggested we started running. I have NEVER liked to run! But the "program" looked mangable....walk 4, run 2 minutes, 5 times for a total of 30 minutes....week one. Okay, I MIGHT can do that. Well, it's the end of week two and I am STILL doing that and barely when I run outside like I did today. We have hills in our neighborhood and I almost died out there today. Even this past Saturday, I ran at my Dad's on Okaloosa Island, Florida. A storm was brewing and the wind was strong. Well, atleast that is what I blamed it on, because there were no hills. Running on the track inside the church gym is easier....or is it just that I have my girlfriends there to cheer me on or sing the "Rocky" music when I want to stop and pass out (thanks Carmen.....and YES, you can almost pass out after only 2 minutes of running. Anyway, I am stubborn enough to NOT just throw the towel in YET. If my best buds can hang in there......I will, too! I will keep you posted:)
