I thought I'd post some photos from my training run(s). I am doing the Couch to 5K running program which is a podcast you can download for free on iTunes. It takes a non-runner (like me!) from zero to 5K capable in 12 weeks.
I used this program along with some other free podcasts for running and actually trained and ran a half marathon (13.1 miles) in 2009 so I know it works, even for a former un-runner like yours truly. Of course, it took me longer than 12 weeks to work up to a half marathon (about 5 months actually) but I ran the Denver Rock n Roll Half Marathon in 3:17 so I was really happy - and I have the shirt & medals to prove it!!
I took these photos when I did a 'virtual' 5K 'Run for Joy' last winter. What's a virtual run you ask? Well basically, my friend Micky had a girlfriend who passed away from cancer on December 26, 2010, so in her honor Micky walks a 5K. She lives in Delaware, and I don't, so I run or walk my 5K wherever I happen to be living on Dec 26th and take photos along the way to document my run.
In 2011 (1st Annual Run for Joy) I did the 5k on a treadmill at the YMCA in Buckner, KY. My 2nd Annual Run for Joy produced these photos. Looks like 3rd Annual Run for Joy will be here too so I'll have to figure out a new route or take photos at new spots to make it interesting.
