Getting into some sort of shape (other than round)

For some reason winter killed me this year. I had no desire to do anything but snuggle on the couch and watch HGTV. It may have had something to do with the fact that either me or one of the kids was sick 98% of the entire winter. Needless to say, months of hibernating has done nothing for my personal fitness level.

Fortunately the sunshine has inspired me to get off my backside and start jogging again. Joe has been running for months because he is competing in the Wasatch Back at the end of June. This sounds a little extreme for me but you can bet that we'll be cheering for him along the way!

Anyway, back to my slacker self. Here goes. Today is Day 1 of Couch to 5K '09. Feel free to cheer me on. I'm sure I'll need it. And if you want to do the program with me, I've set up a handy printable calendar that you can download here. Let me know how you're doing!

The wind. The wind is what keeps me from running. Unfortunately in Billings, that is what spring is all about! Good for you Jeri!
