I found out about The Fat Girl's Guide to Running from a commenter on an article I wrote about running at the first of the year. It has been consistently motivating to me this year. Just knowing there are so many other women who want to run NOW -- and are not waiting until they look like a "runner" -- has muted my excuse button.
Right now my informal running goals are:
- Do 5k once a month and get a little faster each time.
- Run 10k in September for my 40th birthday.
- Run a half marathon in November.
My immediate non-running goal is to go stop my kid from breaking out the front door.
