Hi Everyone! I thoght it was about time I stopped lurking around the boards and introduced myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I've been running since June when I mentioned to my boss that I had started walking again after giving up excercise in April 2006. He emailed a link to me for the C25K program which I completed. For the last four weeks, I've been running a little more than 9 miles per week. I run in my neighborhood at 4:30 in the am, before work, or I never get it done. Of course it takes almost an hour to finish a 3 mile run. I haven't run in a 5K yet, but I plan on doing it in the spring. So, I'm very glad to meet you all and hope you won't mind my chiming in on different threads now and again.

Welcome!! You are off to a good start and it's always nice when you have co-workers(s) with the same running interest - helps keep the motivation going!

No doubt! That's one of the things I miss about my last job - there were 3 other folks who ran at lunch regularly. Most of the time we'd hook up at least once a week for a group run together. Sometimes more often than that. Actually those were the people who encouraged me to start... so I owe them a lot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

It's cool and scary at the same time. My boss runs half marathons and is training for a full marathon. There is another guy here who also runs in lots of races here. They're expecting me to run in the 10K next April if I've worked myself up to it. I'm hoping I will be able to do it, that's six months away. I just don't want to embarrass myself.

There's no embarrassment in trying, or even, failing at the attempt. You're out there and that is already succeeding.

Hi chosha....great to have you aboard.<br>
The biggest thing is making the time to enjoy your running. It sounds like you've been able to carve out a segment of your day, so have some fun.

Thanks! It's called the Leander Firefighter's 5k and kids k. It looks like they're going to make it an annual event.
