    i know what you mean about having the friendship and support here, even without ever meeting. i guess it just goes to show that friendship can span over any kind of distance and through all kinds of circumstances.

    I feel the same about the belly getting in the way. Some of the machines in the gym I struggle with for the same reasons!! But hopefully not for much longer. I live in TX now but am originally from St. Louis, South County area.
    Good luck with your journey. I added you as a friend if you want to help motovate one another.

    Hi Billie!
    Yes, working nights in a stressful environment is very challenging. I usually go workout in the mornings when I get off work, and some days, my feet are so sore from running all night that I just don't want to. It's just one of those things that I've made up my mind to do.
    I work in a small hospital in a relatively rural area of Nevada. We are the largest hospital between Salt Lake City, Utah and Reno, Nevada.
    It's great to 'meet' you and I added you as a friend! Happy Sparking!

    Welcome to your SparkPeople Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program and congratulations on your decision to RUN! My love for running started one day in June 2009 while I was out walking. I grew very bored with walking and decided to break into a jog and immediately loved the feeling. My life has changed in so many ways since that day. I started running at age 50 after never being even remotely close to being an athlete. I am proud to say that I am now a runner! I am a Jeff Galloway runner which means I use the walk/run interval method. I run for two minutes and walk for 30 seconds using a timer called a Gymboss.

    It is my hope that I can help all of you in the beginning of your running journey. As I found out, there is so much more than simply lacing up your tennies and heading out the door. If you want to run for years to come, you will need to ease into your running gradually in order to remain injury free. That is where this wonderful program comes into play. It is designed to allow your body to adapt to the rigors of running that it will experience.

    More than anything I want you to simply have fun with running. Once you experience that first 5k race you will be hooked! You will come home after finishing and look for another 5k to sign up for. Trust me.
