I just jogged for 20 minutes straight while listening to my iPod. I never thought the day would come when I would be able to do that! Recently I have had a real desire to learn how to run. Today was proof that I can do it! Thank you God for giving me the strength!

    Sarah, good for you. Now that you are a runner, you should come with me to the Memorial Park and run 3 miles with me. It'll be a lot of fun. I absolutely love it there. It's beautiful and the running surface is soft dirt and not hard concrete. Just let me know.

    Congratulations, just keep going at it until you can increase the distance and time... I went from 306lbs and now 130lbs and enjoy running now 6 miles in the weekends. Like Rome this didn't happen in one day..

    Aloha Sarah,

    I just wanted to encourage you. I know how it is to start up. Never ever ever ever ever give up! It not only helps to get rid of unwanted pounds it gives you a wonderful sense of accomplishment! Doesn't it? Your 20 minute jog sounds like it has already done that! And the body will naturally help you to push out more time and distance the more you do it.

    When you feel like not keeping to your schedule (Let's face it we all try to get out of doing exercise at some time or another) just put your shoes on. Once those puppies are on then you are committed and no amount of rationalizing can account for the fact that you will feel defeated if you take them off.

    Good luck! You're a runner now! Don't forget it!
