Started Running In February - Now Addicted :)

Posted on April 30, 2015 at 9:00pm 9 Comments

In February of this year, my treadmill broke.  I felt I had no option but to begin outdoor running.

The day before my 62nd birthday, I ran my first 10K (April 7, 2015) with my running group at Elk Lake Park (I'm in the back). And I've entered in my first 5K event in May.

I am very grateful to Eric Orten for his book!  I'm working out now of the slant board and just started with the Fitball.
