Getting In Shape

So, I've been running.  At first it sucked, but I'm actually starting to enjoy it now.  I've never been a runner but always wanted to be.  In Jr. High I was the kid (well, one of them) who had a hard time running the mile in 10 minutes for that stupid president's challenge.  When I was in College Station I worked out with a friend of mine who was a personal trainer and she finally got me running a mile easily, though not quickly, and I enjoyed it.  I remember at that time that I could actually walk with Page and she would start breathing hard before me.  Granted, she was about 5 months pregnant with Zoey, but it was still exciting for me.  My goal now is to run 3 miles, and I'm on the couch potato training program which is working pretty well for me.  I can tell it is getting easier for me each time and I am able to run a little more each time.  Micah is doing a great job of coming home and watching Ava and making me go run-not in a male chauvinist, I can't have a fat wife way, but a I know you can do this and you want to do this so go do it way.  Hopefully I will be able to run the 3 miles by Thanksgiving.  Oh, and Amy Buchanan, every time I run I think of you...Thanks!
