I Suddenly Have the Urge to Run.....
Why is it that every time I watch the Biggest Loser I want to get up off the couch and run a 5K race?

I haven't run since 10th grade gym class.
Wait. No. There was that time at camp where there was a severe storm coming across the lake and I was asked to get back to the office to check the weather. I do recall running across camp. And collapsing in a heap on my desk.

Anyway....I wonder how many people are motivated to get up off the couch and move after seeing that show? I'm sure there are quite a few. As my best friend, Julie says, "...if a 400 pound man can run on a treadmill for 10 minutes, so can I."

There you go.

And speaking of running, if you have some time (because the post is quite long), Fletch completed his 24 hour run last weekend. If you remember, Fletch is a camp dude who wanted to raise money and awareness for Winston--a special needs child of two other camp folks Jennifer & Chris Bertrand. If Jennifer's name sounds familiar, it should! She's the HGTV Design Star from last season!

Anyway, you can read about the run here. In a word: AMAZING.

I love watching Biggest Loser and like you, I have the urge to move more. I do workout every day, but I am watching my calories closer and trying to move more throughout the day!

Stopping by from SITS!

I have never enjoyed running - didn't like it in gym class, didn't like it the eleventy-million times I've tried it since, but something clicked in me recently and I decided to do the C25k program (Couch to 5K) - it's only been about 3 weeks, but you know what??? I actually LOOK FORWARD to my run - I know, I can't even believe it so I"m going to type it again. I actually look forward to my run :) So, if you're even remotely considering running, give it a try. It is planned out by weeks and claims that it will get you from the couch to running a 5k in 9 weeks. I don't even care if it takes longer, I know there will be benefits much sooner than that 9 week mark - heck, there already have been! So, there's my 2 cents worth. Hope you're having a fabulous week!

Not me. I'm perfectly happy sitting here on my couch thank you very much. But, can I just say... you are looking fabulous! Nice job and dedication to your weight loss.

Okay...so I do NOT run...that is unless I am physically being chased! So I push myself to move it other ways! Motivation is hard for me, and I work at the YMCA!!! Excuses come easy, but I am trying!! That is a great story! Happy Thursday!
