Ok I'll be honest, I'm really kind of scared to go for a run. I look dumb when I run and I'm very klutzy! What if I trip and fall into traffic and get hit by a car and die!?! Or what if I just fall and look really stupid, or pass out?

Can you tell I'm not a runner? lol

Ok time to put on my big girl panties and just get out there before it gets too hot, wish my scardy cat butt luck. lol

Well I didn't die nor did I fall :)

I ran 3.5 miles and I feel SO good about that! As much as I'm not a runner it was a really pretty run (to the local duck pond and back) and I'm thinking of making it a weekly thing, maby 3-4 times a week. It was really fun and I'm glad I did it :)

Good luck! You can do it. I am not a runner either and I KNOW I look goofy but my heart and my body thank me for you!

3.5 miles for your first run is great!!! Sounds like your a natural. I don't like roads, and if I do, I pick side streets. Parks and trails are great places to go since they have all types of runners and walkers and you don't feel stupid cause nobody cares as they are all doing the same. Make sure you get a good running shoe to prevent injury and good luck:)
