I consider Del Rio West Texas, but thats just cause I moved from Alpine (true west T) which is only 3 hours away but I think it technically counts as south texas. Its right by Acuna, Mexico and 2 1/2 hours west of San Antonio on 90.

Del Rio...is that in West Texas? I think the Alley Fest run is on June 6th. It is a 3 day event (street fair) in downtown Longview. Crafts, concerts, races etc;

Hey guys, thanks for the warm welcome. No, I don't live in McKinney I just happened to marry someone who was related to the guy the town is named after. I live down in a town called Del Rio.

-Update on my run yesterday- I went .78 of a mile no problem, but then my dog (who is also out of shape) laid down and refused to get back up. But we are going to do twice that today.

Welcome Julia! Do you live in McKinney? I am from Longview, TX. I did the C25K last year and have run 3 5k's at present. I am getting ready to resume running after several months off, and plan to run a 10K in June at the Alley Fest here in Longview.

Good luck on your journey. Just take your time, so you don't injure yourself and stay positive!

Hi, I am just writing a quick introduction. I actually had never heard of C25K (at least not knowing what people were talking about) until today when i was looking up fitness iPhone apps. That inspired me to do some research on it and I found a few websites (coolrunnings.com and c25k.com) and I decided it sounded do-able. At 260 lbs i need to up my calcium so I do not end up with stress fractures (which happened when I was in the Navy) but other than that, it sounds exciting. I am going to do my first day when I get off work. And I hope to stay as motivated throughout the program as I am now. =)
So...nice to meet y'all.
