I did it!

At the beginning of December I started the "Couch to 5k" running program again, and I completed it today!!  This was my 4th time doing the program, but only the second time that I made it all the way to the end.  I'm still not up to speed, though.  You're supposed to do a 5 minute warm up, then run the 5k (or 3 miles) in 30 minutes, and then do a 5 minute cool down.  I did just over 3 miles in total, counting the warm up and cool down times.  Right now I'm running at 5.2 mph, and I'd have to get up to 6 mph to do the 3 miles in 30 minutes.  So that's my new goal.  I'm going to try to do the 30 minute run once or twice a week now, and work on increasing my speed.
