Any one want to start running with me?

I found this what seems to me GREAT way to start running and was wondering if any one out there wants to start with me? I want to lose more about 20 lbs before I get pregnant that way I won't have so much to lose when I do eventually get pregnant. Also, it will help to keep active when the little one is growing inside.
Here is the link that I found.
http://running.about.com/od/getstart...getstarted.htm

Hope that someone wants to join me!

I'd love to start running again! I just need DH to actually help me and let me do it. (He can take DS to the park while I run and I will push DD in the jogging stroller.)

I'm doing a program called "couch to 5K" you can find it by googling it. It's great! It's kind of similar to the one you're doing! I'm on week 2!

That sounds great! I wish I had a jogging stroller. Maybe I can get Hubby to watch her instead. I do Curves a few times a week but would like to add some other things to shake it up.

Running is awesome! A friend and I just started back up and it feels sooooo good! C25K is a good program- it really eases you into running without pushing too hard, too fast. She and I are running around a local lake (3 miles) 4 days a week.

I can't believe how easy it is to start running. I was always under the impression that it would be quite difficult and stayed away from it. I know that it will be hard, but what isn't?

Re: Any one want to start running with me?

Me! I just started as well. I have done 3 runs so far. They have all been between 1 and 1.5 miles, but I was able to run the whole way so I was pretty happy. My big problem right now is that I need to slow down so that I can go further. I have been running 9min/mi already and all of my training stuff says that I should be doing 12.5min/mi! I am going out in a few min. to do 2mi. We will see how it goes!

I'll be joining you too! I will be starting from the beginning again- I was up to 2 miles a day before I got pregnant- then had several complications and had to stop running while I was pregnant- but now I need to get in shape again before even thinking about having a 2nd little one! Count me in!!!
