WednesdayWellness: To run or not to run

I have 4 hours and 39 minutes to decide whether or not I should run in the Fargo Marathon this spring. It's only 10 weeks away, so I would definitely not be doing the full. But not running for more than a year and gaining 20 pounds doesn't give me much hope that I could even finish the second.

So who's with me? Anyone else want to train to run the Fargo 10K with me on May 17. If you don't live here, want to train along for a race near you?

I'm shooting for the 10K. It's 6.2 miles, which really isn't that far — if you're in shape. I'm researching some different training regimes, and I think I could make it if I actually stick to it. And isn't working out so much easier when you have your sights on a goal.

I'd like to start a weekly post where we update each other on our progress and have an open discussion about getting in running shape. Each week we'll issue a challenge for the whole group and hold ourselves accountable.

So here we go. Let's do this. I'm going to call it "10k in 10 weeks."
