Couch to 5K

I think I'm really going to do this. I'm planning on signing up for the Glow Run in St. Louis on Oct. 6th. I have never, ever,ever run for fun in my life. I've barely ever run because it was expected of me. I don't run. I don't like to. Or, I didn't. I know that if I want to succeed I have to lose the defeatist attitude and look at this positively. I have to say "I'm going to love running in the long run!" "I"m going to have so much fun doing races with my friends!" and things like that.
The truth is this: My favorite thing in the whole wide world is taking a bath while reading a book. You do not get much more leisurely than that unless you add in wine and now I want nothing more than to do just that. Bath. Book. Booze. Anyway. That does not sound like a recipe for me to be a runner. But I want to be. I want to lose weight and I want to feel better and I've been told this is the way. So here I go.
I'm looking at the Couch 2 5K program, but does anyone have any other suggestions?

  1. I'm about to go triple B now cause that sounds glorious... I also hate to run, because I've tried it, but my asthmatic lungs are like "HAHA FATTY"!! So I get how hard this actually this, IDK if you've started running, I'm reading these in order, but I'm impressed that you even had a serious thought about it... You are a beautiful, hilarious, working wife/mother of 2... You're already a bad b!tch in my book :)
