Run, Cleveland Chick, Run

I feel like an outtake from Absolutely Fabulous.
I'm thinking of trying something amazingly out of character for me.

Running.

I never liked it much as a kid and I only remember running when I was being chased by killer bees or the mean kid down the street. I've always been more of a saunter type.

But, and you can file this in the things people never tell you category, as you get older, you can't eat bacon cheeseburgers and tater tots at every meal with out horrific repercussions on your body. 

So, I'm going to try something kooky - "Couch to 5K."  The program takes you over 9 weeks, from being a slug on your couch to being able to run a 5K without dying or vomiting.

Wish me luck and if you see me huffing and puffing on the side of the road, please make sure I'm not dying.

Feel free to leave suggestions or warm fuzzy comments.
