I've been running lately. Technically since last April. However I have only been running regularly since July. I've been using the C25K app on my iPhone. My sister-in-love gives a good overview of the program on her blog here (by the way I introduced her to it and she finished the program before my lazy butt did) :)
This morning I went for the first run since running with my friend Dana in Virginia while on vacation. I did week 6 day 2 of C25k, consisting of a 5 minute warm up, 10 minute run, 3 minute walk, 10 minute run and a 5 minute cooldown walk. So 33 minutes total workout and I ran/walked 3.1 miles! That is just shy of a 5k. I came home and looked for local 5k's coming up and found one this Saturday in a nearby town. I just got done registering for it. I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what my time is. Bonus is we are having beautiful weather so it should be nice and cool for the race. Here is where I will be racing. Along a hike/bike trail with water views! Ahh Texas in the fall.
